Review: SUITE FRANCAISE by Irene Nemirovsky

suite-francaiseCarol from Magistra Mater recently posted a review of Suite Francasise by Irene Nemirovsky.  Here’s a snippet:

Irène Némirovsky’s tragic story makes this a bittersweet read.  She lived through the German invasion and occupation of France, writing these two novellas as the events were current. She died in Auschwitz in 1942.  Her daughters rescued her manuscript and left it, untouched,  in a suitcase for 60+ years.  The English translation was published in 2006.  This is very likely the first WWII fiction written.

  1. How very cool! I didn’t know about this at all, so thank you for the education. 😀

  2. Jeannie, I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book. I hope to read it myself for the challenge, but there are so many books from which to choose!
