Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker
“It is the most enjoyable book Sartre has ever written.”
Atlantic Monthly
“The best-written and most interesting of Sartre's novels.”
The New York Post
“With Nausea Sartre has succeeded magnificently—and horribly—in extending the realm of the novel to the outermost reaches of naked self-examination.”
