Suite Française

A long lost eyewitness account of the Holocaust is found.

Written more than 60 years ago, this 'œastonishing' work is 'œa kind of 'instant' War and Peace,' said Susan Rubin Suleiman in The Boston Globe. Russian-born novelist Irène Némirovsky escaped Paris just ahead the 1940 Nazi invasion, and she died at Auschwitz 26 months later, having already filled her notebooks with the first two volumes of what she hoped would be her five-part masterwork. The two completed novellas were published in France just two years ago, and her 'œspare, beautifully pointed' prose comes through brilliantly in this English translation. Even in its unfinished state, Suite Française is a book of 'œProustian scope and delicacy,' said Lev Grossman in Time. 'œBy turns funny and deeply moving,' it captures a civilization at the moment of its unraveling.A caveat: Many of the characters seen fleeing Paris are too cruel or petty to like, said Ned Warwick in The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Price: 25.0
