Discussion Notes: The Adulterous Woman

This week’s story:  The Adulterous Woman by Albert Camus

Next week’s story: The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry

Rated: Adult Themes, Clean Language

Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss “The Adulterous Woman” by Albert Camus, a stirring story about a woman’s mid-life yearning for freedom from the trappings of a comfortable, unfulfilling life. The story takes place in Algeria before the war of independence from France, and features a French couple moving through the Arab interior. The stark imagery and deep internal musings make the story a satisfying read.
