Published for the first time in Britain, this extraordinary novel, considered by many to be one of the finest examples of Simone de Beauvoir's imaginative writing, tells the story of a man doomed to immortality. When the beautiful, ambitious actress, Regina, takes Fosca into her life and learns the amazing truth, she is obsessed by the thought that in his memory her performances will live for ever. But, as he recounts the story of his existence over more than six centuries, as she learns of his involvement in some of the most significant events in history and how human hope and love have withered in him, she finally understands the implications for himm and for love.
