At Page-Turner last week, we published "The Life of the Artist: A Mimodrama in Two Parts," a newly translated short play by Albert Camus. Here, the New Yorker editor Leo Carey reads selections from the text, and the translator Ryan Bloom talks to Richard Brody about the play and where it fits into Camus's life. Also, James Surowiecki considers the high price of lobster in restaurants when the wholesale price of lobster is plummeting.
