Daily Dose

From The Stranger, by Albert Camus, translated by Stuart Gilbert


"Just then the street lamps came on, all together, and they made the stars that were beginning to glimmer in the night sky paler still.  I felt my eyes getting tired, what with the lights and all the movement I'd been watching in the street.  There were little pools of brightness under the lamps, and now and then a streetcar passed, lighting up a girl's hair, or a smile, or a silver bangle."

From Chapter II, page 29
