About the Author

Jean-Paul Sartre was a prolific philosopher, novelist, public intellectual, biographer, playwright and founder of the journal Les Temps Modernes. Born in Paris in 1905 and died in 1980, Sartre was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964—and turned it down. His books include Nausea, Intimacy, The Flies, No Exit, Sartre’s War Diaries, Critique of Dialectical Reason, and the monumental treatise Being and Nothingness.

Richard Howard is the author of eleven books of poetry, including Untitled Subjects, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970. He is the translator for more than 150 works from the French language. He received the American Book Award for his translation of Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal.

James Wood, the prominent critic, essayist, and novelist, is a professor at Harvard and a staff writer for The New Yorker. Born in Durham, England, he began his career at The Guardian and later became a senior editor at The New Republic. He currently serves on the editorial board of The London Review of Books and The Common in Cambridge, MA. His books include The Irresponsible Self: On Laughter and the Novel, How Fiction Works, and, most recently, The Fun Stuff: And Other Essays.

More About the Author

Novelist, playwright, and biographer Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-80) is widely considered one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. His major works include "No Exit," "Nausea," "The Wall," "The Age of Reason," "Critique of Dialectical Reason," "Being and Nothingness," and "Roads to Freedom," an allegory of man's search for commitment, and not, as the man at the off-licence says, an everyday story of French country folk.

Format: Paperback
Although the translation by Lloyd Alexander contained in this 2013 edition of "Nausea" is very readable (hence the 4 stars), this is not what it has been long advertised to be - a new translation. It is in fact the 40+ year old version that has been long available, just with a different cover and an added (12 year old) introduction by James Wood. I first thought this was a printers error, but reading the copyright page makes it clear that it isn't. Don't waste your money if you already have the 2007 edition of this.

Format: Paperback
A brilliant and hauntingly dark glimpse into the soul of a bitter intellectual who feels he has no reason left to exist. A sort of logical progression of Dostoevsky's "underground man", in my eyes, and almost Hunger-esqe in its phantasmagoria, as in the striking stream of consciousness sequence beginning on page 100.

It's not exactly beautiful, but it's the closest, and most accurate, description I've yet found. For that I, and all literate people, should be grateful.

This book will bring you pause and explore what is important to you. The conversation between Antoine and anny alone forces you to consider how you should view life.
