Description

Deirdre Bair won the National Book Award for her “blockbuster biography” of Samuel Beckett, “the best introduction to an enigmatic giant of 20th-century literature” (Christian Science Monitor). Her other acclaimed biographies include portraits of Simone de Beauvoir, Carl Jung, and Al Capone. Her books have twice been finalists for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and she is the recipient of Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundation fellowships. In Parisian Lives, Bair travels nearly 50 years into the past in an exploration of the relationships she had with Beckett and de Beauvoir—literary peers but mortal enemies—and the disparate approaches she used to garner intimate insight into their lives and literature.
