In contention for the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prix de Paris, near the tower of 1932-3Three young friends meet during apricot cocktails at the Bec-de-Gaz bar on Montparnasse street.They are by Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and his friend Raymond Aron, who opens their eyes to a whole new way of thinking.It is not often that you miss you at your bus stop because you are completely absorbed in reading a book on existentialism, but I did exactly what I did.The story of Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger et al’s story is strange, amusing and convincing reading.If it does not win a prize, I will eat my copy “Independent on Sunday `Bakewell shows how fascinating were some of the existentialists’ ideas and how fascinating, often frightening, their lives were.Lively, full of humor, the anecdotes are interwoven with a lucid look and unpatronising exposure of the complexity of their philosophy.Call for Bids, incisive and fair’ Daily Telegraph `Decalé, funny, clear and passionate’.Some writers are as good as Bakewell at explaining complex ideas in a way that makes them easy to understand ” Mail on Sunday
