I read The Fall by Albert Camus on

Review

The Fall is dense, enveloping, and meaningful on more levels than I could grasp. Camus knows something about the human condition, and he tells you it with this ‘fall from grace’ story. As an indirect commentary on the origin of evil it works quietly, avoiding truisms and casting a wide net, exploring how prideful morality can consume and contort a person.

This one I’ll read again, and maybe again.
