"Politics with Beauvoir is a fascinating exploration of Beauvoir as a political thinker concerned with the conditions of collective freedom. By placing Beauvoir in conversation with thinkers and artists from Frantz Fanon and Richard Wright to Hannah Arendt and Lars von Trier, Lori Jo Marso shows why Beauvoir remains a fresh and invigorating feminist philosopher, more relevant than ever." — Toril Moi, author of Simone de Beauvoir: The Making of an Intellectual Woman
"Politics with Beauvoir is a remarkable and exciting book. It is a scholarly study that also brings Simone de Beauvoir's political thought to life, staging ‘encounters’ between Beauvoir and a whole host of others: people she knew personally; people she wrote about; people she might have known but didn't; people she couldn't have known; fictional characters—and of course Lori Jo Marso herself, whose brilliant interpretations and orchestrations give us an unparalleled understanding of Beauvoir on freedom, unfreedom, embodiment, collective action, and emancipatory politics. Smart, sharp, innovative, wonderfully unclassifiable, and vividly relevant, this is one of the best new works of political theory I've read in years." — Patchen Markell, author of Bound by Recognition
