Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre\u2019s classic biography of Jean Genet-thief, convict, and great artist-a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century\u2019s greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre\u2019s most personal and inspired philosophical creations.
