Adieux: A Farewell to Sartre by Simone De Beauvoir

Adieux: A Farewell to Sartre by Simone De Beauvoir. 1984 Pantheon, first U.S. edition, 453 pages. De Beauvoir was best known for her seminal feminist work the Second Sex, as well as her novels and philosophical works, romance with Sartre, and activism. Her writing ranged from fictionalizing a real-life love triangle to detailing her ambivalence toward her mother's death. In Adieux, De Beauvoir writes unflinchingly of Sartre's final years, his health issues, and also her life with him.

Condition: Jacket in good condition, clipped, bend to front flap, book in VG condition.

"Throughout his life Sartre never ceased calling himself into question; he did not underestimate what he called his 'ideological interests,' but he did not wish to be wholly taken over by them."
