  • Portrait of an intellectual

    Written by Jacques Deguy and Sylvie Le Bon de Beauvoir, ‘Simone de Beavoir: Writing Freedom’ limns a portrait of one of the 20th century’s great intellectual figures in a tribute to the French writer and novelist who played a key role in the development of feminism and Existentialism.

    The book expresses the great reverence felt for de Beauvoir, who said, “My life is a wonderful fairy tale that becomes real as I tell it to  myself.”
