Book Review: The Woman Destroyed

The Woman Destroyed
by Simone de Beauvoir
Review by Livvy
I love this book and I love Simone! A brilliant balance of the author’s signature philosophical musings as well as wonderful characters and storytelling. These three short stories are full of passion, wisdom, intelligence and grit, perfectly encapsulating the characters. Their strengths and weaknesses coincide in these seemingly simple narratives. This is one of those books I wish I could go back and read for the first time all over again!!

If you like this, have a go at some of de Beauvoir’s non-fiction like The Second Sex or The Ethics of Ambiguity.
