The Stranger

The Stranger

by Albert Camus

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

This book is sexy, but so is any work by the French, actually. It stops at titillation, however. We get some rubbing and some fondling, but that’s as far as it goes. The content, however, is meant for a mature audience. Pimpdom, prostitution, domestic violence – none easily stomached.
