When Things of the Spirit Come First: Five Early Tales by Simone De Beauvoir 


Vintage trade paperback in excellent condition.  Light discoloration to cover and a teeny pen mark on title page.  Reads like new!

This is a collection of semi-autobiographical tales written when the author was only 30, before World War II. Each tale concerns a young woman struggling with the effects of a Catholic upbringing, and with the stifling social demands of the French bourgeoisie.
