Rezension:

'A tour-de-force.' The New Yorker '[Kamel Daoud's] book, The Meursault Investigation, is a retelling of Albert Camus's classic The Stranger, from an Algerian perspective. Within its 160 pages, Mr. gives voice to the brother of the nameless Arab murder victim who is shot five times on a beach in Algiers by the antihero, Meursault.' New York Times 'Humour erupts in The Meusrsault Investigation every time there is tragedy, and this recipe for the Algerian absurd gives Daoud's book its literary sting.' The Nation 'Clever... Daoud is in equal measure a thoughtful and provocative writer' Times Literary Supplement '[An] extraordinary novel.' London Review of Books 'A superb novel ... In the future, The Outsider and The Meursault Investigation will be read side by side.' Le Monde des Livres 'Very beautiful writing, original, located between suppressed anger and bursts of elation.' Les Echos 'A breathtaking and effectively realized novel. The Outsider becomes a palindrome ... The Meursault investigation approaches the incredible, in that it reverses the perspective and point of view not without an emphatic ferociousness, all while playing with the prose and perspective of The Outsider.' La Croix 'A remarkable homage to its model.' Le Nouvel Observateur 'An intense and surprising story.' La Montagne 'Fiction with a strong moral edge, offering a Rashomon-like response to a classic novel.' Kirkus 'Camus's The Outsider is vividly reimagined in Daoud's intensely atmospheric novel ... readers will be captivated.' Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) 'A thrilling retelling of Albert Camus's 1942 classic ... ingenious.' New York Times Magazine

Rezension:

'A tour-de-force reimagining of Camus's The Stranger ... the author seeks not to re-indict the colonizing French but to relate all the disappointments that the dream of free Algeria has produced for the 'natives,' particularly their degradation by political Islam.' The New Yorker '[Kamel Daoud's] book, The Meursault Investigation, is a retelling of Albert Camus's classic The Stranger, from an Algerian perspective. Within its 160 pages, Mr. gives voice to the brother of the nameless Arab murder victim who is shot five times on a beach in Algiers by the antihero, Meursault.' New York Times 'Humour erupts in The Meusrsault Investigation every time there is tragedy, and this recipe for the Algerian absurd gives Daoud's book its literary sting.' The Nation
