Abstract:

"[This book] has long been considered one of Simone de Beauvoir's masterpieces. The profoundly moving, day-by-day recounting of her mother's death, it is a deeply personal story that reveals a new side of the author and adds a dimension to the self-portrait that her other books have created. But it stands by itself too, as a classic account of an all-too-familiar yet unknown experience. Powerful and touching--and sometimes shocking--it is a story no reader is likely to forget."--p. [4] of cover.
