Description
This superb, panoramic novel offers an achingly poignant love story that goes back to Irčne Némirovsky's roots. Ada grows up motherless in the Jewish pogroms of a Ukrainian city in the early 20th century. Harry Sinner, the cosseted son of a financier, comes from the same city but belongs to a very different world. In Paris Ada makes a living painting scenes from the land of her childhood, until Harry buys two paintings that remind him of his past, and the course of Ada's life changes once more. Appearing for the first time in English, The Dogs and the Wolves was published in France in spring 1940, just months before France fell to the Nazis and Némirovsky was sent to die in Auschwitz.

"Némirovsky was incapable of producing anything less than an enchanting novel. She has an irresistible talent for creating character and incident which makes this story as much a page-turner as anything she has written."—Guardian (London)

"A bitter, angry book reflecting nastiness between Jews, as well as the prejudice and persecution they suffered in France between the world wars ... the novel builds towards a final scene of redemptive tenderness: a piercing note of compassion and hope after all the grimness that Némirovsky has exposed with characteristic boldness."—Times (London)
