Set in Paris on the eve of World War II and sizzling with love, anger, and revenge, She Came to Stay explores the changes wrought in the soul of a woman and a city soon to fall. Although Françoise considers her relationship with Pierre an open one, she falls prey to jealousy when the gamine Xavière catches his attention. The moody young woman from the countryside pries her way between Françoise and Pierre, playing up to each one and deviously pulling them apart, until the only way out of the triangle is destruction. Based on the author's actual relationships with Jean-Paul Sartre and Bianca Bienenfeld

These three long stories draw us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises. In the title story, the heroine's serenity is shattered when she learns that her husband is having an affair. In "The Age of Discretion," a successful, happily married professor finds herself increasingly distressed by her son's absorption in his young wife and her worldly values. In "The Monologue," a rich, spoiled woman, home alone on New Year's Eve, pours out a lifetime's rage and frustration in a harrowing diatribe. Enthralling as fiction, suffused with de Beauvoir's remarkable insights into women, The Woman Destroyed gives us a legendary writer at her best. Three long stories that draw the reader into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises

Simone de Beauvoir : feminist writings by Simone de Beauvoir( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1947, Simone de Beauvoir embarked on a U.S. lecture tour over the objections of a French establishment that hated existentialism but found a woman existentialist unbearable. Newly discovered writings from the time of the tour launch this sixth volume in the acclaimed Beauvoir series, showing a philosopher immersed in feminist ideas and building toward her 1949 classic The Second Sex. By turns surprising and revelatory, Feminist Writings presents recently uncovered works and lectures while providing new translations and contexts for Beauvoir's more familiar writings. Spanning Beauvoir's career from the 1940s through 1986, the pieces explain the paradoxes in her political and feminist stances, including her famous 1972 announcement of a "conversion to feminism" after decades of activism on behalf of women. They also document and contextualize Beauvoir's thinking, writing, public statements, and activities in the service of causes like French divorce law reform and the rights of women in the Iranian Revolution. In addition, the volume provides new insights into Beauvoir's complex thinking and illuminates her historic role in linking the movements for sexual freedom, sexual equality, homosexual rights, and women's rights in France. -- from dust jacket
Memoirs of a dutiful daughter by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

347 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superb autobiography by one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century, Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter offers an intimate picture of growing up in a bourgeois French family, rebelling as an adolescent against the conventional expectations of her class, and striking out on her own with an intellectual and existential ambition exceedingly rare in a young woman in the 1920s. She vividly evokes her friendships, love interests, mentors, and the early days of the most important relationship of her life, with fellow student Jean-Paul Sartre, against the backdrop of a turbulent political time

After The second sex : conversations with Simone De Beauvoir by Alice Schwarzer( Book )

18 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interrogée, entre 1972 et 1982, par Alice Schwarzer, journaliste, chef de file des féministes allemandes et amie proche, Simone de Beauvoir raconte son engagement dans la lutte pour les droits des femmes, relate les actions qu'elle a menées, parle d'amour, de politique, de sexualité, de maternité, du travail féminin et du pacifisme, s'insurge contre l'idée d'un "éternel féminin" et celle d'une "supériorité des femmes". Elle répond aussi à des questions très personnelles : l'intellectuelle n'en est pas moins une femme qui aime - Jean-Paul Sartre participe à l'un des entretiens -, travaille (beaucoup), se voit vieillir et souffre. Elle a le culte de l'amitié et, le confesse, un caractère très absolu. Des années plus tard, la plupart des revendications et des constatations sur la place de la femme dans la société, la solitude de la vieillesse ou encore la recherche d'un équilibre en amour sont toujours d'une actualité frappante

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the age of globalization and New Media unite disparate groups of people in new ways, the continual transformation and interconnections between ethnicity, class, and gender become increasingly complex. This reader, comprised of a diverse array of sources ranging from the New York Times to the journals of leading research universities, explores these issues as systems of stratification that work to reinforce one another. Understanding Inequality provides students and academics with the basic hermeneutics for considering new thought on ethnicity, class, and gender in the 21st century
