My book, Camus, A Romance, came out this summer and after eight years of working on it and effectively living with Albert Camus, I find myself missing roaming around in his life and missing being in France of the 1940's and 1950's.  As a post-script, I have decided that I want to go to Algeria, where Camus grew up and where, for safety sake, I was unable to go during the years of writing my book, which coincided with heightened fundamentalist violence.  For anyone who has been there in the last decade, in and around Algiers, or further south into rugged country, I'd love to hear about your experience.

I had that feeling of loss

I had that feeling of loss when I wrote about Kafka. I went to Prague before writing the novel, but I would still like to go to other places associated with him - particularly the area in Berlin where he lived the end of his life.
