Simone de Beauvoir


This ‘lost’ novel by a giant of 20th-century letters reads surprisingly like a French Elena Ferrante… Lauren Elkin’s translation is undistractingly smooth ― Daily Telegraph


Translated by Lauren Elkin with exquisite finesse, it utterly conveys both de Beauvoir’s heady sensuality and its immediate opposite, observant restraint… The Inseparables is a ravishing work of art ― Financial Times


A succulent taster for those who don’t know de Beauvoir’s work and, for everyone else, a treat ― Daily Mail


A poignant and sensitive portrait of female friendship which acutely captures the agonizing mysteries of intimacy. The translation was gorgeous, and there were lines that absolutely punched me in the gut — Anbara Salam author of Belladonna


Slim, elegant, achingly tragic and unaffectedly lovely in its evocation of the closeness between girls – and the pressures that sunder them ― Spectator

About the Author

Simone de Beauvoir was born in Paris in 1908. In 1929 she became the youngest person ever to obtain the agrégation in philosophy at the Sorbonne, placing second to Jean-Paul Sartre. She taught at the lycées at Marseille and Rouen from 1931-1937, and in Paris from 1938-1943. After the war, she emerged as one of the leaders of the existentialist movement, working with Sartre on Les Temps Mordernes. The author of several books including The Mandarins (1957) which was awarded the Prix Goncourt, de Beauvoir was one of the most influential thinkers of her generation. She died in 1986.
