They Were Coming for Him

Author(s): Berta Vias Mahou; Cecilia Ross (Translator)

Literary Fiction

Winner of the Premio Dulce Chac n, overcoming finalists Enrique Vila-Matas and Mario Vargas Llosa.


"An outstanding novel. Vias describes the process that will lead to Camus' intelectual isolation and subsequent helplessness. Superb."--Fernando R. Lafuente, ABC


Jacques (Camus's alter ego), recalls the last years of his life. Famous for his opposition to any form of violence whatsoever, his ideas met the disapproval of the intelligentsia of the time, and he was threatened to death. This would trigger in him a recurring nightmare: They Were Coming For Him--to kill him.


Berta Vias is a Spanish literary writer and translator who lives in Madrid, Spain.
