Summary (From the publisher):

The Age of Reason is the first novel in Sartre's trilogy, The Roads to Freedom. The scene is Paris, 1938, in a world that watched with helpless anguish the inevitable approach of World War II. Reflecting the unrest of the time, the central character is rootless, frantically concerned with sex and liquor, obsessed with the determination to retain his freedom. Under the rich fabric of character and incident lies a complicated drama of philosophic ideas, an eloquent introduction to the doctrine of existentialism.
