ABOUT ALBERT CAMUS

Albert Camus was born in 1913 and died at the early age of 46. He was a renowned French author and philosopher and his essays, and general views, contributed to the rise of a new brand of philosophy known as absurdism. He was born in Algeria and was a keen footballer having played in goal for Racing Universitaire d'Alger (RUA won both the North African Champions Cup and the North African Cup in the 1930s). An incredibly successful man, Camus won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957 just three years before his death, and his works are still shared today.
