Description

A collection of never-before-translated stories by the bestselling author of Suite Française, this is a gorgeous, gemlike volume with the same attention to detail that won Irène Némirovsky so many fans. Written between 1934 and 1942, these ten stories mine the same terrain as her bestselling novels: a keen eye for the details of social class; the tensions between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives; the manners and mannerisms of the French bourgeoisie; and questions of religion and personal identity. Moving from the drawing rooms of prewar Paris to the lives of men and women in wartime France, here is the beautiful work of a writer at the height of her tragically short career.

        Irène Némirovsky (1903–1942), was born in Kiev, Ukraine, 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 Française was published posthumously, for the first time. It became an international bestseller, with nearly a million copies in print in the United States alone.

        Starred review from February 1, 2010
        Ten luminous and newly translated stories by Némirovsky (Suite Française
        ), who died at Auschwitz, expose the miseries that undermine happy families. Set mostly in France, where the author immigrated after the Russian revolution, these accomplished tales create worlds full of secrets and treacheries, such as in the title story, set on one typical Sunday at a bourgeois Parisian home where the middle-aged wife and mother, Agnes—once embittered by her husband's taking of a mistress, but now apathetic to his wanderings—remembers her own lost love. “Flesh and Blood” is a masterpiece of familial subterfuge revolving around an aged matriarch who falls ill and tries to keep peace among her three self-absorbed sons and their grasping wives. In “The Spell,” a young visitor to a messy Russian household gleans dark mysteries around a lovelorn aunt's romantic sorcery; several of the tales, such as “The Spectator” and “Monsieur Rose,” capture aloof, prosperous gentlemen fleeing Paris in advance of the Nazis. In this superlative translation, Némirovsky's characters emerge full-fleshed, and her voice remains timeless and relevant.

        Cassandra Campbell offers a fine, straightforward reading of the 10 stories Némirovsky wrote between 1934 and 1942, when she died at Auschwitz. Némirovsky’s themes are those of her bestselling Suite Française: the disintegration of France’s upper-class society, families, and individuals in Paris before the arrival of the Nazis, and Campbell’s portrayals of self-absorbed bourgeois Parisians are well defined without exaggeration and with an impeccable accent. A Vintage hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 1).

        Starred review from September 15, 2010

        Nemirovsky, whose posthumously published Suite Francaise (2004) won the Prix Renaudot, wrote these ten stories between 1934 and 1942. Never before translated, they are vignettes of the French middle class, unsentimental and piercing looks at family life that end abruptly, leaving readers/listeners with few answers but much to consider. Director/narrator Cassandra Campbell's clear, melodious voice is a good counterpart to the text; cool and detached, her voice emphasizes the hypocrisy, disconnectedness, and implicit irony that permeate the stories. She gracefully alters her pitch, pacing, and accent for every new point of view she adopts. Strongly recommended.--Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA
