Book Reviews & Awards

• “Dr. Boyer’s knowledge of Camus’ work is extremely impressive. Her guides, Explorons L’Étranger d’Albert Camus: Édition de l’enseignant and Explorons L’Étranger d’Albert Camus: Édition de l’étudiant, are two highly original and significant contributions to the study of Camus and especially to L’Etranger, read widely by high school and/or university students in French. They will help instructors and students approach Camus in a great number of ways. They weave together linguistic and literary exercises, emphasizing French language proficiency as well as reflective activities designed to promote analytical skills. They are also written in an elegant style that is easily readable by all students, including those who might only have basic reading skills in French.”—Rose Marie Kuhn, Professor of French, California State University Fresno

• Wonderful! High school and college teachers who intend to teach Camus’s L’Étranger must read this and they will no doubt adopt it.—Didier G. Bertrand, Associate Professor of French, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis
