Betwixt and Between is a collection of essays and articles written by Albert Camus when he was in his early twenties, it was his first book and it was published in 1937. The book is a reflection on the society, culture and politics of his time, as well as on his own experiences and feelings as a young man in Algeria, a French colony. In this book, Camus reflects on the complex relationship between the colonizers and the colonized, and he also reflects on the sense of alienation and isolation that characterized his own experiences as a young man. He also touches upon the themes of identity, freedom, and the human condition, which are recurrent in his later works. Overall, Betwixt and Between is considered a valuable insight into the early thought and development of Camus as a writer and philosopher.
