She Came To Stay – Simone de Beauvoir


Chosen by Rachel

A fictionalised account of de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre’s open relationship, in particular their affair with sisters Olga and Wanda Kosakiewicz.

“This is such a decadent story where everything is available and life is for living. It is a great example of existentialist story telling, where the characters are the sole drivers of their lives and their futures, so there is a lot of dialogue and fast-paced relationship building. The story of de Beauvoir, Sartre and their affairs is quite unreal, and together they make for a brilliant page turner.” – Rachel
