Born out of wedlock early in the last century, impoverished and unloved Violette Leduc meets Simone de Beauvoir in post‐war Saint‐Germain‐des‐Prés. An intense lifelong relationship develops between the two women authors, based on Violettes quest for freedom through writing and on Simones conviction that she holds in her hands the destiny of an extraordinary writer.
