Summary
". Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre & rsquo;s classic biography of Jean Genet & amp;mdash;thief, convict, and great artist & amp;mdash;a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century & amp;rsquo;s greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre & amp;rsquo;s most personal and inspired philosophical creations."
