Lorri from Jew Wishes recently reviewed Woman of Letters: Irene Nemirovsky and Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky and edited by Oliver Corpet and Garrett White.  Here’s an excerpt:

It is a must-have book if you are a reader of Irene Nemirovsky’s work. Even if you aren’t, you will gain historical knowledge from this compilation. It is a fascinating look at the life and times of a courageous woman, a woman who was a mother, wife, daughter and author, a woman who died of typhus in Auschwitz. It’s historical merits are invaluable. That she was able to have the stamina and courage to pen Suite Francaise is amazing, in itself, under the extreme circumstances that surrounded her. I highly recommend this poignant and brilliant book to everyone. It is a testament to her courage and struggles as an author, during extreme adverse moments in time.
