Review:

"Seymour-Jones's narrative crackles and pops with engrossing anecdotes." - "The Observer "
"Filled with delicious detail... eminently readable. Seymour-Jones's book is as page-turning as it is scholarly. The end result is quite dazzling." -"The Guardian"
"A fascinating new book." -The "Daily Mail"
"Extremely detailed, well researched, and completely absorbing." - " Booklist (STARRED review) "
"Appearing in what might be called a 'sexography, ' Sartre, the Nobel-winning existentialist philosopher, and Beauvoir, existentialist and pioneering feminist, cavort with a dizzying panoply of partners...A spiraling double-helix of a relationship whose sordid beauty fascinates even as it repels." - " Kirkus "
"An important contribution to the study of de Beauvoir and Sartre that will be appreciated both by general readers and by scholars of French literature and culture and women's studies." - "Library Journal "

A fascinating new book. "

A fascinating new book.

Extremely detailed, well researched, and completely absorbing.
