Reviews - What do customers think about Lettres a Nelson Algren?

another Beauvoir  Apr 5, 2000
A very beautiful book which reveals another Simon de beauvoir: the one in love. She's passionate, sincere, writing with her heart to his "beloved" transatlantic love. They met in America when Simon came to give a cycle of conferences around the States, and they started to write from this moment. We see how their love rises, how they open their hearts letter by letter, and we realize that her love was nothing but authentic. It's also a very interesting reading about life in Paris among the intellectuals of the time, the day by day with Sartre and their travelling together around the world. You really get in touch with this time and this circle of people. Very touching.
