The first novel of Sartre's monumental Road to Freedom series, The Age of Reason is set in 1938 and tells of Mathieu, a French professor of philosophy who is obsessed with the idea of freedom. As the shadows of World War II draw closer--even as his personal life is complicated by his mistress's pregnancy--his search for a way to remain free becomes more and more intense. Translated from the French by Eric Sutton.
