"Sartre's Roads of Freedom is generally thought of as a trilogy: The Age of
Reason, The Reprieve and Troubled Sleep. Sartre abandoned the two-part fourth volume, "Strange Friendship" and "The Last Chance," published in French after his death. Set in a German POW camp, it continues the story of Roads of Freedom, exploring the interrelations of politics, responsibility, friendship and freedom - themes central to Sartrean existentialism. This volume includes a previously unpublished interview with Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir's account of his plans for the unfinished fourth volume, and an introduction to the unfinished fragments."*
