Camus wrote of Meursault:
"You would not be far wrong then in reading The Outsider as a story of a man who, without any heroics, accepts death for the sake of truth. I have sometimes said, and always paradoxically, that I have tried to portray in this character the only Christ we deserve." (Albert Camus, preface)
