About this product
- DescriptionThey are one of the world's legendary couples. Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre - those passionate, free-thinking Existentialist philosopher-writers - had a committed but toriously open union that generated end of controversy. Through original interviews and access to new primary sources, Hazel Rowley portrays them up close: their romantic entanglements, their Parisian cafe society circle, their discussions of each other's work. Theirs is a great story - and a great story is precisely what they most wanted their lives to be.
- Author BiographyBorn in London and brought up partly in Australia (where she taught at Deakin University, Melbourne) Hazel Rowley is the author of two previous books of nonfiction: Christina Stead: A Biography and Richard Wright: The Life and Times. Her awards include Rockefeller and Radcliffe Fellowships, and the National Book Award from Australia. She divides her time between New York and Paris.
