I had never read any of De Beauvoir' s work before this one, though I certainly had heard of her pivotal Feminist work, "The Second Sex." This memoir us a painful, but necessary read which focuses on De Beauvoir' s painful experiences of watching her mother's decline and death.

De Beauvoir' s writing us brutally frank as she describes her mother's death with devastating accuracy. Death is never pretty and De Beauvoir' s language is full of the ugliness of death, but gentle at the same time. A must-read for anyone who is going through the process of watching a family member die.

She writes about her mother's prolonged, difficult, painful death with this ironic title.
Mananara
This is so moving and honest and specific in its examination of how death and dying can affect perception and relationships. Sad, surprising and starkly real. I loved it.
Shaktiktilar
A great piece by a woman who shares the intimate details of a journey through death and life.
Mavivasa
A classic

I am taking a class on death and this is one of the required readings. I found it well written and a fairly easy read since it's short, but even with the small size, it tends to drag on at times. My biggest disappointment is that I didn't really learn anything about the author. It's like she's holding us at arms-length the whole time.

it was so good
One of Simone's best work--clear easy to read and just simply unforgettable. I found it amazing and not in her usual philosophical style but very simple not complicated reading and a good easy read.
