A Leveling Wind:
Reading Camus’ The Stranger

camus1,711 words

Interview with Bill Hopkins

Bill Hopkins, photographed by Ida Kar, 1955

7,100 words

JB: Were you an angry young man?

The whole country was in a state of stagnation, everything was pointless and meaningless. It was as though someone had stuck a vast syringe into the arm of the nation and all the energy had been withdrawn from it. We were all in limbo. Read more …
