These three long stories draw us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises.

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. -- Back cover

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
The ethics of ambiguity by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

171 editions published between 1944 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In de Beauvoir & rsquo;s second major essay, the renowned French philosopher illustrates the ethics of Existentialism by outlining a series of & ldquo;ways of being & rdquo; In this classic introduction to Existentialist thought, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir & rsquo;s The Ethics of Ambiguity simultaneously pays homage to and grapples with her French contemporaries, philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, by arguing that the freedoms in Existentialism carry with them certain ethical responsibilities. While contemplating Nihilism, Surrealism, Existentialism, Objectivity, and human values, The Ethics of Ambiguity is a thorough examination of existence and what it means to human life. To do this, de Beauvoir outlines a series of & ldquo;ways of being & rdquo; (the adventurer, the passionate person, the lover, the artist, and the intellectual), each of which overcomes the former & rsquo;s deficiencies, and therefore can live up to the responsibilities of freedom. Ultimately, de Beauvoir argues that in order to achieve true freedom, one must battle against the choices and activities of those who suppress it

The Second Sex (French: Le Deuxième Sexe) is a 1949 book by the French existentialist Simone de Beauvoir. One of her best-known books, it deals with the treatment of women throughout history and is often regarded as a major work of feminist philosophy and the starting point of second-wave feminism. Beauvoir researched and wrote the book in about 14 months when she was 38 years old. She published it in two volumes and some chapters first appeared in Les Temps modernes. The Vatican placed it on its List of Prohibited Books. -- from http://en.wikipedia.org (Sep. 5, 2014)

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

19 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,059 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

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

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 408 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
Adieux : a farewell to Sartre by Simone de Beauvoir( Book )

52 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Dust Jacket: In Adieux: A Farewell to Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir uses Jean-Paul Sartre's last ten years as a focus for understanding his entire life. Through her eyes, we see an intimate portrait of the man who was widely recognized as one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century-the foremost philosopher of existentialism, a Nobel Prize-winning playwright, and a central figure in almost every major philosophical, political, literary, and social issue of our time. De Beauvoir was Sartre's closet friend, his intellectual companion, and, intermittently, his lover, from his early twenties until his death. It is she who tells his story in Adieux. She begins with a year-by-year memoir of Sartre's last decade: his political involvements, his work on Flaubert, his friendships, his relationship with her, his slow demise. The second and longer part of the book is a conversation between Sartre and De Beauvoir about his entire life and work. Unguarded, lucid, and incisive, Sartre talks about the origins of his philosophy, the inspiration for his fiction, and the conviction behind his activism. But more than a philosophical book, Adieux is a personal dialogue of astonishing candor. Sartre openly discusses his relationships with women-a subject which seems to pain De Beauvoir even now; his ugliness; his fear of passion. And in one of the most moving passages in Adieux, De Beauvoir anticipates Sartre's death. She knows he is dying, but she cannot tell him. Existentialism's acceptance of death does not console her. Adieux reveals the inner Sartre and the inner De Beauvoir, and illuminates one of the most extraordinary relationships of our century
