He was the brother of 'the Arab' killed by the infamous Meursault, the antihero of Camus's classic novel. Angry at the world and his own unending solitude, he resolves to bring his brother out of obscurity by giving him a name - Musa - and a voice, and by describing the events that led to his senseless murder on an Algerian beach. A worthy complement to its great predecessor, The Meursault Investigation is a profound meditation on Arab identity and the disastrous effects of colonialism in Algeria.
