She came to stay
Set in Paris on the eve of World War II and sizzling with love, anger, and revenge, She Came to Stay draws on Simone de Beauvoir's relationship with Jean-Paul Sartre and the affair that almost destroyed it. It digs deep into the changes wrought in the soul of a woman and a city soon to fall. Although Francoise considers her relationship with Pierre an open one, she falls prey to jealousy when the gamine Xaviere catches his attention. The moody young woman from the countryside pries her way between Francoise and Pierre, playing up to each one and deviously pulling them apart, until the only way out of the triangle is destruction.
