Very Easy Death by Simone de Beauvoir

Book Description

"A Very Easy Death "has long been considered one of Simone de Beauvoir s masterpieces. The profoundly moving, day-by-day recounting of her mother s death shows the power of compassion when it is allied with acute intelligence ("The Sunday Telegraph"). Powerful, touching, and sometimes shocking, this is an end-of-life account that no reader is likely to forget."

Author Biography - Simone de Beauvoir

Simone de Beauvoir was born in Paris in 1908. In 1929 she became the youngest person ever to obtain the "agregation" in philosophy at the Sorbonne, placing second on the exam to Jean-Paul Sartre. She taught at lycees in Marseille and Rousen from 1931 to 1937, and in Paris from 1938 to 1943. After World War II, she emerged as one of the leaders of the existentialist movement, working with Sartre on "Les Temps Modernes. "The author of many acclaimed works, de Beauvoir was one of the most influential thinkers of her generation. She died in 1986."
