Event description
Lauren Elkin and Deborah Levy on Simone de Beauvoir's rediscovered novel The Inseparables

About this event

Written in 1954 but unpublished until after her death, Simone de Beauvoir’s The Inseparables is an intimate portrait, based on life, of female friendship on the cusp of womanhood. Its translator into English Lauren Elkin writes in her introductory note ‘“So is it any good?” people have asked me when I’ve told them I’m translating a ‘lost’ novel by Simone de Beauvoir … And I am relieved to say: yes. It is more than good. It is poignant, chilling and eviscerating.’

Elkin, author of Flâneuse and No. 91/92: Notes on a Parisian Commute will be in conversation with novelist and essayist Deborah Levy who has contributed an introduction to the UK edition. The event will be chaired by Alice McCrum, programs manager at the American Library in Paris.
