Besides the political story, there are several love stories, alternately idyllic, passionate, horrifying, and tragic.

— Scott Espinoza


An unflinching look at Parisian intellectual society at the end of World War II. In fictionally relating the stories of those around her - Jean-Paul Satre, Albert Camus, Arthur Koestler, Nelson Algren - de Beauvoir dissects the emotional and philosophical currents of her time.
