The Mandarins

“Salty, frank, and realistic.” ― San Francisco Chronicle
“Much more than a roman a clef . . . a moving and engrossing novel.” New York Times

This book is on my bookshelf because Simone de Beauvoir maintained that womanhood, and by extension, motherhood, were social constructs that served as tools in the patriarchal oppression of women.
