A first edition, first printing published by Secker and Warburg in association with Lindsay Drummond in 1949. A very good (or better) book without inscriptions. In a very good unclipped wrapper which has some light archival internal repairs, including to a small hole on the spine.
Simone de Beauvoir, a prominent existentialist philosopher and feminist, wrote “She Came to Stay” (1943), exploring complex human relationships. Set in Nazi-occupied Paris, it delves into the entangled lives of existentialist intellectuals, including herself and Jean-Paul Sartre, as they navigate love, jealousy, and existential crises. Through the character of Françoise, Beauvoir examines themes of freedom, authenticity, and the struggle for individual identity in a world fraught with moral ambiguity.
