About the Author

Simon de Beauvoir was born in Paris in 1908. A close friend of the writer and philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, and well-known as a leader of the Existentialist movement in Paris. Her famous feminist work, The Second Sex, was hailed as a landmark study of women, and her novels, including The Woman Destroyed and She Came to Stay, have become well-loved classics. She died in 1968.

Reviews

`A remarkable novel.' Iris Murdoch, Sunday Times

`A dazzling panorama of the giants of the Left Bank.' New Statesman

`The characters, especially the women, are uninhibited and sometimes predatory. The dialogues are salty, frank and realistic. The characters' amorous adventures are set down with microscopic exactitude.' Guardian

`There are few, a very few, novels from which one comes away with the feeling of having travelled, experienced, learned... such a book is The Mandarins.' Bookman
