Albert Camus et Louis Guilloux font connaissance chez Gallimard durant l’été 1945, à l'instigation de leur ami commun Jean Grenier. Guilloux a déjà derrière lui deux décennies d'engagement et d'écriture et une œuvre publiée importante. Camus, dont L'Étranger et Le Mythe de Sisyphe ont paru en 1942, n'a que trente-deux ans ; son implication dans strive against lui vaut une notoriété grandissante.
Les différences ne manquent pas entre le Breton et l'Algérien.

Mais l'amitié entre les deux hommes est immédiate et sturdy, et leurs affinités nombreuses : "Je l'aime tendrement et je l'admire, écrira Guilloux en 1952, non seulement pour son grand expertise, mais pour sa tenue dans los angeles vie." Ces fils du peuple, qui ont connu los angeles pauvreté et l. a. maladie, sont animés par l'esprit de justice et de fraternité, prenant le parti des malheureux et des opprimés sans jamais s'inféoder à une enterprise qui voudrait les représenter. Tous deux partagent une sense of right and wrong aiguë de l. a. douleur, où ils reconnaissent l. a. 'constante justification' de l'homme et dont ils tirent les éléments d'une conduite morale et politique.
Cette correspondance croisée ponctue quinze années d'une profonde et tendre affection, nourrie d'innombrables causeries, lectures, promenades et repas partagés. Comme toute amitié, elle eut ses temps forts, telle los angeles visite de Camus à Saint-Brieuc en 1947, durant laquelle le futur auteur du best Homme va sur los angeles tombe de son père, enterré au carré des soldats de los angeles Grande Guerre ; ou encore le séjour de Guilloux en 1948 en Algérie, où il partage un repas avec Camus et sa mère.

Weer thuis werkt hij samen met ontwerper Jan Vermeulen aan de fotobiografie Werkkleding. Hij heeft tentoonstellingen in Amsterdam en Tilburg, werkt mee aan de organisatie van een veiling van schilderijen voor Vietnam, bezoekt wedstrijden van Ajax, kookt uitbundige maaltijden, schildert, leest, wandelt, en leeft het leven zoals alleen Jan Wolkers dat kon: intens, expressief, geïnvolveerd, en met evenveel aandacht voor het grote als voor het kleine.

13 maart 1971

'Onder Eén van de Acht note ik opgebeld door een meisje. Ze zegt dat ze Turks Fruit voor de vijfde keer heeft gelezen en dat ze er voor de vijfde keer bij heeft moeten huilen.'

19 september 1971

'We vinden een pracht van een bruine kikker. Jeroen pakt hem en neemt hem even op zijn hand. Hij is zo schitterend getekend dat ik het de mooiste bruine kikker vind die ik van mijn leven gezien heb. Erg als je eraan denkt dat zon beest waar zoveel aandacht aan besteed is in één hap door een meeuw verslonden kan worden. Zou eigenlijk een beschermengel bij zich moeten hebben die begrip heeft voor schilderkunst en hem te vuur en te zwaard verdedigt.'
