Score one more for the Nobel Prize winners. In this obviously intellectual novel a once lawyer, boozing it up in a sleazy bar (lassomoir), wearies an affable patron with his lifes story, as well as his philosophy of justice. He is certain to bore the average reader as well. His triumphs give way to failure. His boastfulness of a stalwart career ends with a profession of a sham of justice. Why them does his listener put up with this? The last page will expose the truth. Unless you are writing a dissertation on Camus, you will never miss having skipped this one.
