El último libro de ficción publicado en vida de Albert Camus, una colección de seis fabulosos relatos signados por la búsqueda del sentido vital. Los relatos de El exilio y el reino (1957) constituyen la última obra narrativa que publicó Albert Camus antes de su intempestiva muerte en 1960. Ambientados en diversos escenarios, desde un campamento nómada en el desierto argelino hasta un barrio acomodado de París o un pueblo de Brasil, todos se centran en personajes que se hallan privados de un reino personal y se enfrentan a distintos tipos de exilio literal o figurado. Sin embargo, el conjunto defiende la fraternidad y la búsqueda de un horizonte ético que nos preserve del nihilismo social, en consonancia con otros libros de madurez del autor como La caída o El hombre rebelde .

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From a variety of masterfully rendered perspectives, these six stories depict people at painful odds with the world around them.
A wife can only surrender to a desert night by betraying her husband. An artist struggles to honor his own aspirations as well as society's expectations of him. A missionary brutally converted to the worship of a tribal fetish is left with but an echo of his identity. Whether set in North Africa, Paris, or Brazil, the stories in Exile and the Kingdom are probing portraits of spiritual exile, and man’s perpetual search for an inner kingdom in which to be reborn. They display Camus at the height of his powers.
