Troubled Sleep

Jean Paul Sartre, Translated By Gerald Hopkins


The last book in Sartre’s stunning Roads to Freedom series Troubled Sleep chronicles the fall of France to the Nazi forces and the blank, mute reaction of the French people. Sartre’s examination of people who have no long term plans takes the reader down different paths and is executed with amazing dialogs and narrations. The book doesn’t end on a happy note, more of a cross between releaf that the battles are over and fear of what is to come.
