They are one of the world's legendary couples. Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre - those passionate, free-thinking Existentialist philosopher-writers - had a committed but notoriously open union that generated no end of controversy. Through original interviews and access to new primary sources, Hazel Rowley portrays them up close: their romantic entanglements, their Parisian cafe society circle, their discussions of each other's work. Theirs is a great story - and a great story is precisely what they most wanted their lives to be.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An elegant, concise, gossipy account... heartbreaking and compelling" * Financial Times *
"Refreshingly unpretentious. It may be the book that Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir wished to be written about their shared life" * Sunday Times *
"Rowley tells [the story] with compelling vigour... What is wonderful about Rowley's book, aside from its readability, is that she catches the intellectual excitement as well, the intimacy of thought" -- Brian Morton * Sunday Herald *
"[Rowley] manages to recapture the charm and the brilliance of the relationship in its early stages, which makes her story all the more poignant and depressing" * Scotsman *
"Marvellous ... A born storyteller" -- Serena Davies * Telegraph *
