"Aujourd’hui, maman est morte. Ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas" ("Today mother died. Or maybe yesterday, I don't know") is the opening line in Albert Camus's existentialist novel The Stranger, in which the bored alienated protagonist Meursault struggles to construct an individual system of values as he responds to the disappearance of the old.
