Product Overview

The first major biography of the author of Suite Fran?aise

The posthumous publication of Suite Fran?aise won Ir?ne N?mirovsky international acclaim and brought millions of readers to her work. But the story of her own life was no less dramatic and moving than her most powerful fiction.

With her family, she escaped Russia in 1919 and settled in Paris, where she met and married fellow Jewish ?migr? Michel Epstein. In 1929 she published her highly acclaimed and controversial novel David Golder, the first of many successful books that established her stellar reputation. But when France fell to the Nazis, her renown did her little good: without French citizenship, she was forced to seek refuge in a small Burgundy village with her husband and their two young daughters. And in July 1942 N?mirovsky was arrested and deported to Auschwitz, where she died the following month.

Drawing on N?mirovsky?s diaries, previously untapped archival material, and interviews, her biographers give us at once an intimate picture of her life and turbulent times and an illuminating examination of the ways in which she used the details of her remarkable life to create ?some of the greatest, most humane, and incisive fiction [World War II] has produced? (The New York Times Book Review).
