Great 20th century thinkers apply wisdom to current events in this fictional account. What would writer Albert Camus and existentialist writer Jean-Paul Sartre make of this modern world? The characterizations are reasonably sound and the book will appeal to students of existential literature. It is an inspired reimagining of the latter years of the existentialists.
