More than sixty years later, Suite Fran aise, was published posthumously, for the first time, in 2006.

Reviews

"Luminous. . . . These accomplished tales create worlds full of secrets and treacheries. . . . "Flesh and Blood" is a masterpiece of familial subterfuge. . . . In this superlative translation, N mirovsky's characters emerge full-fleshed, and her voice remains timeless and relevant."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Ir ne N mirovsky "Extraordinary. . . . N mirovsky achieve[s] her penetrating insights with Flaubertian objectivity."
--The Washington Post Book World "Stunning. . . . [N mirovsky] wrote, for all to read at last, some of the greatest, most humane and incisive fiction that conflict has produced."
--The 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
