Product description

Review

"The effect of the new translation, which should be applauded, is to make Beauvoir more herself. . . still lively, still apropos." --Slate

"This is the edition Beauvoir herself would have wanted, one so true to the original that we can hear her voice in the text. Borde and Malovany-Chevallier's new translation is long overdue, and it is a triumph." --Margaret Simons, Distinguished Research Professor Emerita, Southern Illinois University

"[Borde and Malovany-Chevallier's translation] can be read with confidence, enlightenment, and pleasure. . . . A significant step forward and a remarkable achievement. So if you're one of those people who always meant to read The Second Sex--why not now?" --Women's Review of Books

"From Eve's apple to Virginia Woolf's room of her own, Beauvoir's treatise remains an essential rallying point, urging self-sufficiency and offering the fruit of knowledge."
--Vogue

"[A] long-awaited achievement." -"Book Bench," newyorker.com

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
