Publisher's Synopsis

One of the most influential thinkers of her generation draws us into the lives of three women, all past their first youth, all facing unexpected crises in these three "immensely intelligent stories about the decay of passion" (The Sunday Herald Times).

Suffused with de Beauvoir's remarkable insights into women, The Woman Destroyed gives us a legendary writer at her best. Includes "The Age of Discretion," "The Monologue," and "The Woman Destroyed."

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