In 1945, the year of France’s liberation from German occupation, Jean-Paul Sartre published the first novel of a three-volume sequence, Roads to Freedom. The central narrative theme of The Age of Reason, set in Paris in the summer of 1938, concerns Mathieu Delarue’s urgent search for money to pay for a clandestine abortion for his lover. It is a story of ambiguous relationships, struggles with principles, values and commitments, and above all the meaning of freedom.
