For some he was the philosopher of existentialism, for others the constant provocateur, the politically engaged author, the uncertain militant, the repenting bourgeois, the life companion of Simone de Beauvoir… From his first readings in the Luxembourg Garden to his refusal of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Jean Paul Sartre was all of this at the same time. In his biographic piece, the life and thoughts that made Sartre a known name are brought to print in rich color.
Anaïs Depommier was born in the late 1980s in a small village in the Southeast of France. Growing up a close friend of Mathilde Ramadier, they couldn't do enough sleepovers from one’s house to the other.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If only I could give it zero stars. In the tradition of your worst history teachers this book is a list of names, places and dates with no soul. If you know nothing about Existentialism before reading this graphic novel you will know nothing about at afterwards. In this book World War 2 in France is a bloodless, bombless, and NAZI free, series of in-clique discussions of philosophy over wine and cheese in pretty villas, or in romanticly shabby cellars. Nary a mention of rival factions of resistance fighters killing each other so that their “version” of communism or socialism will have the upper hand after the war. It's all so clean and unreal that it leaves no mark on the reader or it's subject. It's also historically sloppy, on page 88 a caption tells us that Sartre took a Douglas DC-8 to New York, in January 1945. DC-8s were first built in 1958 but there it is, illustrated, a 4-engine transatlantic pressurized jetliner. It's probably the result of a typo or copy smudge in some source document (DC-3, 1936. DC-4, 1938.) but the fact that both the writer and the artist missed this does not give a reader confidence. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK, do not read it. If only I could give it zero stars. “Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth” by Apostolos Doxiadis and‎ Christos Papadimitriou, about Bertrand Russell is how you write a philosophical biography
