    Jean-Paul Sartre (1905–1980) was a hugely influential French philosopher, novelist, playwright, and pamphleteer. In 1964 he declined the Nobel Prize for Literature. Among his most well-known works available in English areNausea, Being and Nothingness, No Exit, Critique of Dialectical Reason, andThe Words.

    Ronald Aronson is the author of The Dialectics of Disaster, After Marxism, Camus and Sartreand Living Without God. He teaches at Wayne State University.

    Adrian van den Hoven is Professor Emeritus at the University of Windsor and founding Executive Editor ofSartre Studies International. He has translated Sartre, Camus, and other French writers, and is the author of several books about Sartre. He was twice elected President of the North American Sartre Society.
    Jean-Paul Sartre was a man of staggering gifts, whose accomplishments as philosopher, novelist, playwright, biographer, and activist still command attention and inspire debate. Sartre’s restless intelligence may have found its most characteristic outlet in the open-ended form of the essay. For Sartre the essay was an essentially dramatic form, the record of an encounter, the framing of a choice. Whether writing about literature, art, politics, or his own life, he seizes our attention and drives us to grapple with the living issues that are at stake.

    We Have Only This Life to Live is the first gathering of Sartre’s essays in English to draw on all ten volumes ofSituations, the title under which Sartre collected his essays during his life, while also featuring previously uncollected work, including the reports Sartre filed during his 1945 trip to America. Here Sartre writes about Faulkner, Bataille, Giacometti, Fanon, the liberation of France, torture in Algeria, existentialism and Marxism, friends lost and found, and much else.We Have Only This Life to Live provides an indispensable, panoramic view of the world of Jean-Paul Sartre.
