A DANGEROUS LIASION Examines the Lives of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir

France Magazine takes a look at A Dangerous Liasion, by Carole Seymour-Jones in the current issue: "Seymour-Jones examined new primary sources for this dual biography of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, conducting fresh interviews and delving into previously unavailable correspondence. The result is a page-turning account of the lifelong relationship between two of the 20th century’s most influential intellectuals against the backdrop of their wartime activities, their political and social engage- ment, and Sartre’s enduring blind spot vis-à-vis the Soviet Union."
