Letters to Sartre, Paperback


In 1983 de Beauvoir published Sartre's letters, maintaining that her own to him had been lost.

They were found by de Beauvoir's adopted daughter, and published to a storm of controversy in France.

Tracing the emotional and triangular complications of her life with Sartre, the letters reveal her not only as manipulative and dependent but Simonealso as vulnerable, passionate, jealous and committed.
