  • Balanced with elements of critique, Skye Cleary delivers Simone de Beauvoir's views on authenticity with matchless clarity. In this elegantly written text, abstract ideas are embodied with compelling stories from either or both Beauvoir's life or that of the author. This coupling of the ethereal and earthly injects How to Be Authentic with a delightful resonance of authenticity that helps to bring home Beauvoir's bounty of existential wisdom.

  • How To Be You is a thrilling invitation to reconsider all our ways of seeing and being - how to parent, how to love, how to age, how to connect. It is a book like the best kind of conversation. We are in the company of not just one brilliant woman, but two. Skye Cleary is a wonderful guide to de Beauvoir's work, while also bringing her own wisdom to our present moment. Fascinating. Necessary.
