Read full description of the books:
Okay, here's the funny part. The great philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre (the author of Nausea, No Exit, and Being and Nothingness) referred to his true love Simone de Beauvoir (author of The Second Sex) as "My darling Beaver" in virtually every letter he wrote to her.
As if that weren't bad enough, he ended his letters with thoughts like the following:
My dear little flower, I love you with all my might.
I yearn to cover your face with kisses.
I'm burning to see you again.
I send you a warm hug.
I love you so much, you little paragon.
I'm almost there within your little paw, which I kiss fervently.
We two are one, my little jewel.
I send you a big kiss, face of the well-trod path.
I send you a kiss for your little cheeks.
I would so like to squeeze your little arm.
I want to squeeze you like a lemon.
Now in between all of that, you would think two great philosophers would talk about something . . . oh, I don't know . . . say . . . philosophical? Unfortunately, no. Just sheer boredom. I learned almost nothing about either of them. Except that Jean-Paul is a dork.
Jean-Paul used the code name Emma to evade censorship.
Sartre was famous for lacking in personal hygiene. In another book, I read that it was Beauvoir who convinced him to smoke a pipe to cover up his body odor. Here his male friends refer to him as "too filthy." One man refuses him objects until "Once you've washed." Once he shaved and washed up, which "created quite a stir in the courtyard." And he kept unclean "despite the danger of catching lice."
Sartre wanted Camus to direct and play the male lead in No Exit.

Read information about the authorJean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre, normally known simply as Jean-Paul Sartre, was a French existentialist philosopher and pioneer, dramatist and screenwriter, novelist and critic. He was a leading figure in 20th century French philosophy.
He declined the award of the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work which, rich in ideas and filled with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age."
In the years around the time of his death, however, existentialism declined in French philosophy and was overtaken by structuralism, represented by Levi-Strauss and, one of Sartre's detractors, Michel Foucault.
