Description
In haunting ways this novel prefigures Suite Française and some of the themes of Irène Némirovsky's great unfinished sequence of novels; All Our Worldly Goods, though, is complete. First published in France in 1947, five years after the author's death at Auschwitz, it is a gripping story of family life and star-crossed lovers, of money and greed, set against the backdrop of small-town France between the wars. Pierre and Agnès marry for love against the wishes of his parents and the family patriarch, the tyrannical industrialist Julien Hardelot, provoking a family feud that cascades down the generations. Full of drama and heartbreak, telling observation of the devastating effects of two wars on a small town and an industrial family, this is Némirovsky at the height of her powers.

"A beautiful writer—lucid, bright.... She misses nothing."—Times (London)
