Nausea

Early reception

In his Sartre biography, David Drake writes,[41] Nausea was on the whole well received by the critics and the success of Sartre the novelist served to enhance the reputation he had started to enjoy as a writer of short stories and philosophical texts, mostly on perception."

Although his earlier essays did not[7] receive much attention, Nausea and the collection of stories The Wall, swiftly brought him recognition.

Carruth writes[6] that, on publication, "it was condemned, predictably, in academic circles, but younger readers welcomed it, and it was far more successful than most first novels."
