About the Author

Jean-Paul Sartre was a prolific philosopher, novelist, public intellectual, biographer, playwright and founder of the journal "Les Temps Modernes." Born in Paris in 1905 and died in 1980, Sartre was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964--and turned it down. His books include "Nausea, Intimacy," "The Flies," "No Exit, Sartre's War Diaries, ""Critique of Dialectical Reason," and the monumental treatise "Being and Nothingness." Quintin Hoare is the director of the Bosnian Institute and has translated numerous works by Sartre, Antonio Gramsci, and other French authors. He lives in the United Kingdom.

Reviews

"It has to be said that Sartre's "War Diaries" are a delight."--"Times Higher Educational Supplement"

"Whatever you value in Sartre, his philosophy, his art, or simply the historical fact of his existence and influence--the notebooks add substantially to his achievement."--James Fenton, "The Times"

"Enormously impressive, with all the crispness and manic intelligence which distinguish the early short stories and his one undoubted literary masterpiece, "La Nausee"."--John Weightman, "Observer"
