Description
Information
Simone de Beauvoir's great autobiography tells the story of her life, from the age of twenty-one, when she experienced the intoxicating freedom of being a 'grown-up' in Paris for the first time, through the uneasy, rebellious 1930s, the war years and finally to the liberation of Paris in 1944.Writing with engaging candour and exuberance, she describes her struggle to realize her vocation as a writer, the early years of her unconventional love affair with Jean-Paul Sartre that was to last half a century, and her personal search for identity and for the liberty she had always craved. This was a momentous period in her life, during which the radical ideas and values were formed that made her one of the great intellectual figures of our time.
