“There is one question that every thinking woman in the Western world must have asked herself at one time or another. Why is a nice girl like Simone de Beauvoir sucking up to a boring old fart like Jean-Paul Sartre?”

It was strange, wasn't it? I've finished that memoir and I'm moving on to the next. There wasn't much about Sartre in it but that old Louis Menand article in the NYer made their relationship sound dreadful. I'm not sure she/they managed to improve on a traditional marriage although I certainly admire the attempt.
