Benedict Cumberbatch reads I embrace you with all my heart by Albert Camus
Letters Live: A letter from Albert Camus to Louis Germain, read by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Author Albert Camus was just 11-months-old when his father was killed in action during The Battle of the Marne; his mother, partially deaf and illiterate, then raised her boys in extreme poverty. Years later, in 1957, Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Shortly after the occasion, he wrote to his beloved former teacher, Louis Germain, who once steered young Camus on the path he now trod so well.
