'This is the second volume in Simone de Beauvoir's great autobiography.
It covers the early years of her unconventional partnership with Jean-Paul Sartre, the outstanding intellectual of his generation. It is the story of a search for personal freedom and identity during the rebellious thirties and the war-torn forties, and records the lives of the two key figures in the intellectual and political history of contemporary France.'
