Une Mort Très Douce - Simone de Beauvoir

Product Description

Published in 1964, Une Mort Très douce is a retrospective and reflective review of the last weeks in the life of Simone de Beauvoir's aging mother. It is a beautifully written, raw, honest, and powerful evocation of a slow death from the viewpoint of a relative. Its themes are universal–love, ambivalence in family ties, loss, and bereavement.
