Response to Kamel Daoud’s The Meursault Investigation has been overwhelmingly positive, sparking widespread and engaged discussion amongst critics and readers of all types. The New York Times Book Review hailed it as “[A] rich and inventive new novel…so convincing and so satisfying that we no longer think of the original story as the truth, but rather come to question it,” and The Guardian dubbed it “An instant classic.” But Daoud’s work has inspired more than words; each new review is accompanied by it’s own artwork, which does its part to illuminate the themes and beauties found in Daoud’s work.
