Heller McAlpinIt's not unusual for biographers to fall in love with their subjects. After all, researching and writing a life is a major commitment, longer and more intimate than some marriages. What is unusual is for a biographer to address a lifelong passion for her subject as directly as Elizabeth Hawes does in Camus, A Romance. She has channeled her ardor into a rich hybrid of biography, literary criticism, intellectual history and memoir. Yet, despite its personal slant, her book's revelations are mainly about Camus.
