I knew him briefly, and now he is just a stranger.

I don't WANT to be exposed to kamus.

There was something about him, a certain je ne sais quonsar.

I guess I'm an uncultured boob, because the first thing I think of when I hear "Camus" is his no-talent grandson who is a third-rate celebrity, first-rate womanizer here in Japan.

How Sartre discovered that "hell is other people" without ever having read metafilter is perhaps the world's greatest mystery.

Camus is buried about 20 minutes from my house and his daughter lives right under my friends' art gallery.

"So I said to Woody Allen, Camus can do but Sartre is smartre."

Where do you live, faux ami? I was in Lacoste for the past few months, right by Bonnieux.

I'm reading through Being and Nothingness right now, strangely enough.

Rumors of kamus' death are apparently premature...

What's with the "Kamus" spelling?

Hi Still. I'm on French time, so I didn't get to your comment very quickly. I'm in the Lubéron, between Cavaillon and Lauris. Bonnieux is beautiful. And, of course, Lacoste is the famous prior résidence of the Marquis de Sade. What were you doing here? [sorry insomnia for chatting in your post]
