 Chapter Chapter 63 of Lavengro by George Borrow
The stranger appeared to be soon engrossed with the newspaper.
Chancing suddenly to cast my eyes upon the stranger, I saw his brow contract; he gave a slight stamp with his foot, and flung the newspaper to the ground, then stooping down he picked it up, first moving his forefinger along the floor, seemingly slightly scratching it with his nail.
The stranger made no reply, but appeared to be in deep thought; nothing farther passed between us until I had concluded the dinner, when I said to him, ‘I shall now be most happy, sir, to have the pleasure of your conversation over a pint of wine.’

Meursault of The Stranger belongs to this group and one can understand his feelings toward French institutions as well as the tension between those of Arab and French origin in the story by taking this into account.
During that time he also worked on the drafts of a play, Caligula, and an essay, The Myth of Sisyphus, which he felt, with The Stranger, would be parts of one whole, constituting the cycle of the Absurd.
Camus revised The Stranger while living back in Algeria with his wife's family and then sent an edition to Lyon in April 1941 where Gallimard agreed to publish it.

 SparkNotes: The Stranger: Context
Though his career was cut short, he remains one of the most influential authors of the twentieth century, regarded both for the quality of his fiction and for the depth and insightfulness of his philosophy.
The Stranger is often referred to as an “existential” novel, but this description is not necessarily accurate.
Some ideas in The Stranger clearly resemble this working definition of existentialism, but the broader philosophy of existentialism includes aspects far beyond this definition that are not present in The Stranger.

 The Stranger
Tomorrow when President Nixon lays a wreath at the marble shaft erected at the tomb of the Unkown Soldier of World War I in Arlington National Cemtery, he will be, in a sense, duplicating a custom that began in the village of Gray, Maine during the war between the North and South.
For more than a century, every Memorial Day, the grave of The Stranger in Gray has born a flag and flowers.    Some times it was difficult to find a Confederate flag, so the Stars and Stripes was substitued; often people from the village came to place a geranium, or some wild flowers, by the stone.
Erected by the Ladies of Gray."   It is a paean to the people of Gray who gave the unknown soldier an honorable burial, hoping that their sons -fighting on blood-soaked battlefields- would be treated in kind if found dead on enemy soil.

 Seattle's other newspaper war
Sensitive to the notion of its perceived lack of seriousness, The Stranger has bulked up its news gathering, hiring City Hall reporter Erica Barnett (away from the Weekly) and politics reporter Sandeep Kaushik, in addition to expanding the responsibilities of longtime news editor (and frequent provocateur of the Weekly) Josh Feit.
The Stranger, citing average number of pages per issue and advertising lineage, says it now is producing a larger, more lucrative paper (historically a Weekly strength) while closing the circulation gap.
Likewise, Kaushik, The Stranger's politics reporter who scooped all of Seattle's media with coverage of the attempted dissolution of the dailies' Joint Operating Agreement, gives occasional credit to the Weekly's penchant for in-depth reporting, such as Nina Shapiro's coverage of serious financial problems at KCTS.

 Lavengro, the Scholar, the Gypsy, the Priest - CHAPTER LXIII
No; a man of the middle age, and rather above the middle height, dressed in a plain suit of fl, made his appearance, and sat down in a chair at some distance from me, but near to the table, and appeared to be lost in thought.
'I never read newspapers,' said the stranger, 'nor, indeed, - ' Whatever it might be that he had intended to say he left unfinished.
Scarcely had I uttered these words when the stranger laid his hand, with seeming carelessness, upon the table, near one of the glasses; after a moment or two he touched the glass with his finger as if inadvertently, then, glancing furtively at me, he withdrew his hand and looked towards the window.

Yet Diski proves quite adept at getting to know her fellow passengers, in particular finding camaraderie in the smoking carriage, where the exiles of clean-living American society congregate to answer their tobacco addiction and tell their stories.
On a moving train, location is almost irrelevant and indeed Diski’s book skims lightly over the landscape, focusing instead on the idiosyncratic conversations, confessions, arguments, seductions and musings of its occupants.
Yet Stranger on a Train is itself as much autobiography as travel writing.

At a mostly civil City Club debate yesterday, as well as a rowdier debate the night before sponsored by an alternative weekly newspaper, candidates stressed the main themes of their campaigns.

The Stranger invited a stripper — fully clothed — to implore the candidates to reconsider a proposed "four-foot rule" that would in effect ban erotic lap dances, and, she said, close strip clubs.
