Description
"When Irčne Némirovsky's Suite Française, a tale of occupied France, was published for the first time in 2004, it caused a sensation and launched a literary revival. Now readers will learn the full, tragic story of this best-selling French author of Russian Jewish descent in a phenomenally well-sourced, detailed, analytical, and beautifully written biography saturated with Némirovsky's own bracing candor and penetrating insights. Personal adversity, anti-Semitism, and war forged her steely sensibility, as [Olivier] Philipponnat and [Patrick] Lienhardt reveal in their coverage of Némirovsky as the unloved only child of a workaholic financier and a cruel, rapacious mother, and as a 'fiercely independent' young woman in France after her family fled Russia's gruesome pogroms and civil war. With her first book [David Golder], a novel about a Bernie Madoff of her time, Némirovsky, a happy new mother at 26, became a wildly controversial celebrity. Tenacious, shrewd, fearless, alluring, and gifted, she wrote unflinchingly about human failings and transcendence in nine novels and dozens of stories between 1932 and 1942. Philipponnat and Lienhardt chronicle every complex challenge, joy, and betrayal Némirovsky faced, up to her death at Auschwitz, in this propulsive, discerning, and devastating portrait of a brilliant writer in a time of escalating horror."—Booklist (starred review)
