In "The Stranger" Meursault, a young French Algerian man shoots and kills an Arab man on the beach. The dead man is never named. Harun, the narrator of "The Meursault Investigation," claims that the dead man was Musa, his older brother. In an attempt to prove his brother's existence, Harun investigates nearly every element of Meursault's crime, finding reasons to question everything. Kamel Daoud's "The Meursault Investigation” turns Albert Camus' novel "The Stranger" inside out in a provocative, exciting and occasionally irritating way.
