A DESMEDIDA NA MEDIDA e o segundo caderno de anotacoes de Camus.
Entre aforismos ('Levar sua lucidez ate o extase') e instrucoes criativas tambem sinteticas ('Fazer anteceder o romance de fragmentos de jornal'), ganham espaco comentarios de suas leituras filosoficas e fragmentos de prosa, depois aproveitados em suas principais obras. Mas ainda mais do que as obras, e o proprio escritor que aqui toma forma ante os olhos do leitor.

His duties take into the Libyan desert to work with the tribes behind German lines. Back in Cairo, Kathy has her own brave part to play. Read on...
2020. L'épidémie de lycanthropie sévit en Europe depuis près de trente ans. La Roumanie est l'un des pays les plus en pointe concernant la recherche sur ce rétrovirus, mais aussi l'un des rares où les lupins ont le droit de vivre dans la société. Sous certaines restrictions. Pour s'occuper des crimes lupins, des unités de polices spéciales exclusivement composées de malades ont été créées. On les appelle les Brigades des loups. Un professeur massacré. Une mère de famille et son enfant dévorés vivants. De jeunes lupins sauvages en liberté. Pourquoi ces crimes ? D'où viennent ces enfants, et quel est leur but ? Les réponses pourraient bien bouleverser l'avenir de la brigade de Bucarest.
Can an Indecent Proposal Eight years ago, a tall, handsome stranger entered Lady Alexandra’s bedchamber and consummated a marriage of the utmost necessity. The Marquis of Steyne had agreed to wed and bed Lord Brute’s admittedly lovely daughter to pay off his mother’s gambling debts. But once the deed was done, Steyne’s lawfully-wedded wife vanished into the night… Lead to Everlasting Love? Years later, Steyne has nearly forgotten about his runaway bride. But when he suddenly finds himself in need of an heir, he has no choice but to track her down. Living happily in a small village under an assumed name, Alexandra is surprised to see her husband—and to feel such a strong attraction to him. But she is downright shocked when he asks her to bear him a son. How can they possibly repeat the heated encounter of their ill-fated wedding night…without falling hopely in love?
