Shortlisted for the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize Paris, near the turn of 1932-3. Three young friends meet over apricot cocktails at the Bec-de-Gaz bar on the rue Montparnasse. They are Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and their friend Raymond Aron, who opens their eyes to a radical new way of thinking... ‘It’s not often that you miss your bus stop because you’re so engrossed in reading a book about existentialism, but I did exactly that... The story of Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger et al is strange, fun and compelling reading. If it doesn’t win awards, I will eat my copy’ Independent on Sunday ‘Bakewell shows how fascinating were some of the existentialists’ ideas and how fascinating, often frightful, were their lives. Vivid, humorous anecdotes are interwoven with a lucid and unpatronising exposition of their complex philosophy... Tender, incisive and fair’ Daily Telegraph ‘Quirky, funny, clear and passionate... Few writers are as good as Bakewell at explaining complicated ideas in a way that makes them easy to understand’ Mail on Sunday

Literary Odysseys is an introduction to the strategies that enable readers to analyze the short story form. Like persons on an odyssey, students will become involved in the "world" of each text and how it relates to their own lives and to the larger world. This journey should lead students to feel "at home" and comfortable when they talk and write about literature, particularly the short story form. Literary Odysseys is not set up like many anthologies in which students read a text in isolation, answer a few questions, listen to lectures, and then write an essay. Instead, each of the seven short stories presented in this textbook is related to a social, historical, or philosophical context. The idea is for students to become familiar with some of the major trends that have influenced and shaped literature--as well as humanity--so that they have the concepts and vocabulary they need to answer the question: "What did you think about the story?" Literary Odysseys includes Interactive activities Supplementary readings Cross-cultural component Recycled information Answer key Glossary Writing guidelines Biographical information .
