The Plague
The Plague The Fall ; Exile and the Kingdom ; and Selected Essays By Camus, Albert Book - 2004

I re-read The Plague early in the Coivid epidemic (I read many books along that line in the first six months to help cope). A work of great humanity written in a clear and simple prose. The protagonist is a doctor who stays in the small (fictional) town of Oran on the coast of Algeria as a plague slowly begins and then rolls over the citizens. I think is is one big statement of Memento Mori - remember death, which is a kind of inevitable plague on humanity. Oddly, not a grim book.
A good summary from The School of Life: https://youtu.be/vSYPwX4NPg4
