Cover for Beauvoir: Wartime Diary. Click for larger imageThe October 6, 2008, issue of Publishers Weekly includes a laudatory review of the forthcoming (December 2008) English translation of Simone de Beauvoir’s Wartime Diary.

“What gives these notebooks additional zest and texture are allusions to an unexpectedly wide range of writers the diarist read during these searing days. . . . English readers are now afforded a very different portrait of the feminist philosopher approaching middle age in this well-annotated volume.”
