'Les mots', autobiography of famous French writer and philosopher Jean Paul Sartre, in Malayalam translated from French by Alakkat Salila. Written when he was fifty-nine years old, 'Vaakkukal' is a masterpiece of self-analysis. Sartre the philosopher, novelist and playwright brings to his own childhood the same rigor of honesty and insight he applied so brilliantly to other authors.
Born into a gentle, book-loving family and raised by a widowed mother and doting grandparents, he had a childhood which might be described as one long love affair with the printed word. Ultimately, this book explores and evaluates the whole use of books and language in human experience. 'Vaakkukal' has been widely compared to Rousseau's Confessions.
