Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter
Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter | Simone de Beauvoir
A superb autobiography by one of the great literary figures of the twentieth century, Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter offers an intimate picture of growing up in a bourgeois French family, rebelling as an adolescent against the conventional expectations of her class, and striking out on her own with an intellectual and existential ambition exceedingly rare in a young woman in the 1920s.She vividly evokes her friendships, love interests, mentors, and the early days of the most important relationship of her life, with fellow student Jean-Paul Sartre, against the backdrop of a turbulent political time.

#layallyourloveonme I read this book years and years ago and enjoyed it. de Beauvoir‘s memoir chronicles her childhood and coming of age and even the beginning of her relationship with Jean Paul Sartre. Quite the odd couple, they were together for decades but never married or lived together. I‘ve seen their relationship called a “soul marriage”. ❤️❤️ #abbainaugust

Fresh from the bookstore! I went to browse and I couldn't resist to the cover. What is wrong if I have three editions of Anna Karenina?
