‘My relationship with you and yours with me: idyllic’. Thus wrote Sartre to Beauvoir in a letter of September 1937. Relations between the Sartrean and the Beauvoirian critical fields have not always been quite so harmonious; however, the recent publication of Simone de Beauvoir’s letters to Nelson Algren – three hundred and four letters covering a seventeen-year period (1947-1964) – offers an intriguing intertext to the Beauvoir-Sartre epistolary relation, and an opportunity to work towards a less partisan approach to the work of this most famous of couples.
