Inspired by an apricot cocktail in a 1930s Paris cafe, existentialism would become the 20th-century’s most pervasive – and fashionable – philosophical idea. Sarah Bakewell’s book gleefully explores the movement’s larger-than-life personalities, from Jean-Paul Sartre to Simone de Beauvoir, and asks what it still tells us about the human desire to be free.
