Product Description

“Witty, immensely adroit . . . These three women are believable individuals presented with a wry mixture of sympathy and exasperation.”
– The Atlantic

“A remarkable feat of empathy.”
– The Times Literary Supplement

“Brilliant craftsmanship.”
– Harper’s

In three “immensely intelligent stories about the decay of passion” (The Sunday Herald Times [London]), Simone de Beauvoir draws us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises.

Enthralling as faction, suffused with de Beauvoir’s remarkable insights into women, “The Woman Destroyed” gives us a legendary writer at her best.
