About the Author

Ir ne Nemirovsky was born in Kiev in 1903, the daughter of a successful Jewish banker. In 1918 her family fled the Russian Revolution for France where she became a bestselling novelist .

It was here that Ir ne began writing Suite Fran aise. She died in Auschwitz in 1942. ranslated by Sandra Smith.

Reviews

"Deftly translated by Sandra Smith, this is possibly the most devastating indictment of French manners and morals since Madame Bovary, as hypnotic as Proust at the biscuit tin, as gruelling as Genet on the prowl. Irene Nemirovsky is, on this evidence, a novelist of the very first order, perceptive to a fault and sly in her emotional restraint" * Evening Standard * "Remarkable as the story of the publication of Suite Francaise is, it will finally be of anecdotal interest compared with the importance of the book. Here is the work of a fine novelist at the top of her form, writing about the fate of her adopted country with a pitiless clarity" -- Patrick Marnham "[I]t is certain to be the toast of publisher...evokes the heroism, brutality and cowardice of a country under occupation...critics are united in acclaiming it as one of the most important novels about the occupation" * Sunday Times * "Suite Francaise is one of those rare books that demands to be read" -- Helen Dunmore * Guardian * "A book of exceptional literary quality, it has the kind of intimacy found in the diary of Anne Frank" * Times Literary Supplement *
