    The Prime of Life is Simone de Beauvoir s memoirs of her 20 s and 30 s in the pre war and then occupied France until the liberation of Paris in 1944 She recollects her youth with Sartre and the bohemian circle of friends they were a part of I found her style of writing very appealing it is honest and simple, but there is also dignity in it that perhaps precludes her from writing too directly about her friends She never claims to be a higher moral authority and there is little to no judgment The Prime of Life is Simone de Beauvoir s memoirs of her 20 s and 30 s in the pre war and then occupied France until the liberation of Paris in 1944 She recollects her youth with Sartre and the bohemian circle of friends they were a part of I found her style of writing very appealing it is honest and simple, but there is also dignity in it that perhaps precludes her from writing too directly about her frie...
