“The morning after a great historical crisis, you feel as sad and sick as after a heavy night. But there is no aspirin for historical hangovers.”
“Humanity’s friend, humanity’s critic: 50 years after his death, Albert Camus’s work is more relevant than ever.”
“My children and grandchildren, my nephews and my great-niece did not know him. For their sake I wanted to include photographs of every kind. I wanted to rediscover his laughter, his frivolity, his generosity, rediscover this warm and attentive man, who let me live. I wanted to show that Albert Camus was, as Séverine Gaspari has written, ‘a man among men, and one who tried to be as much a man as he could’.”
