Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Jean-Paul Sartre was France. For a brief time after the Second World War he embodied
all the genius and impotent frustration of a proud nation reduced to beggary, first by the Nazis, then by the threat of Americanization. That the threat was blunted was due in no small measure to the French intellectuals, of whom Sartre was briefly the undisputed leader; they saved the country's soul even as they pummeled and tormented it, trying to shape it to conform to their often contradictory vision. Ronald Hayman has produced a splendid biography of the man who, along with de Gaulle and Schuman, rescued France from the ashes." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
