About the Book



By the world-famous writer and feminist Simone de Beauvoir, here are three moving stories which eloquently express her understanding of women and the crises they face in mid-life.



Book Synopsis



One of the most influential thinkers of her generation draws us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises in these three "immensely intelligent stories about the decay of passion" (The Sunday Herald Times).

Suffused with de Beauvoir's remarkable insights into women, The Woman Destroyed gives us a legendary writer at her best. Includes "The Age of Discretion," "The Monologue," and "The Woman Destroyed."

"Witty, immensely adroit...These three women are believable individuals presented with a wry mixture of sympathy and exasperation." --The Atlantic

About the Author



SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR was born in Paris in 1908. In 1929 she became the youngest person ever to obtain the agrégation in philosophy at the Sorbonne, placing second on the exam to Jean-Paul Sartre. She taught at lycées in Marseille and Rousen from 1931 to 1937, and in Paris from 1938 to 1943. After World War II, she emerged as one of the leaders of the existentialist movement, working with Sartre on Les Temps Modernes. The author of many acclaimed works, de Beauvoir was one of the most influential thinkers of her generation. She died in 1986.
