About the Author

Ir�ne N�mirovsky was born in Kiev in 1903 into a wealthy banking family and emigrated to France during the Russian Revolution. After attending the Sorbonne in Paris she began to write and swiftly achieved success with DAVID GOLDER, which was followed by more than a dozen other books. Throughout her lifetime she published widely in French newspapers and literary journals. She died in Auschwitz in 1942. More than sixty years later, Suite Fran�aise, was published posthumously, for the first time, in 2006. Claire Messud is the award-winning author of four works of fiction: When the World Was Steady, The Hunters, The Last Life, and, most recently, The Emperor's Children.

Reviews

"Stunning . . . [N�mirovsky] wrote, for all to read at last, some of the greatest, most humane and incisive fiction that conflict has produced." --New York Times Book Review "N�mirovsky's scope is like that of Tolstoy: she sees the fullness of humanity and its tenuous arrangements and manages to put them together with a tone that is affectionate, patient, and relentlessly honest." --O, The Oprah Magazine "Extraordinary . . . N�mirovsky achieve[s] her penetrating insights with Flaubertian objectivity." --The Washington Post Book World "Brilliant . . . [N�mirovsky wrote] with supreme lucidity [and] expressed with great emotional precision her understanding of the country that betrayed her." --The Nation [N�mirovsky had] an alert eye for self-deceit, a tender regard for the natural world, and a forlorn gift for describing the crumbling, sliding descent of an entire society into catastrophic disorder." --London Review of Books "Transcendent, astonishing . . . Like Anne Frank, Ir�ne N�mirovsky was unaware . . . that she might not survive. And still, she writes to us." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "A novelist of the very first order, perceptive and sly in her emotional restraint." --Evening Standard (London)
