"Always candid, this exceptional account brings to light some intimate—and not too surprising—aspects of the life of Sartre and de Beauvoir." —Library Journal

In this intimate memoir, Bianca Lamblin tells the story of her menage a trois with Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, and their abandonment of her, a Jew, at the onset of World War II.


"Simone de Beauvoir's voluminous memoirs, carefully crafted to present a certain image, are cast in a very different light in this eyewitness and very personal account by Bianca Lamblin, de Beauvoir's former student."—Yolanda Astarita Patterson, President, Simone de Beauvoir Society
