and regret it explores the troubled relationship between a young girl her distant self absorbed mother and her mother s lover Max We follow the family through the Great War and the Russian Revolution as the young H l ne grows from a dreamy unhappy child into an angry young woman br br br br br br Through hot summers in a fictionalised Kiev N mirovsky s own birthplace and the cruel winters of St Petersburg the would be writer H l ne blossoms despite her mother s neglect into a clear eyed observer of the life around her i The Wine of Solitude i is a powerful tale telling less of the end of innocence than of disillusionment the story of an upbringing that produces a young woman as hard as a diamond prepared to wreak a shattering revenge on her mother, b From the author of the bestselling i Suite Fran aise i b br br In a French courtroom the trial of a woman is taking place Gladys Eysenach is no longer young but she is still beautiful elegant cold She is accused of shooting dead her

her decline and then the final irrevocable act With the depth of insight and pitiless compassion we have come to expect from the author of i Suite Fran aise i Ir ne N mirovsky shows us the soul of a desperate woman obsessed with her lost youth, Readers everywhere were introduced to the work of Ir ne N mirovsky through the publication of her long lost masterpiece i Suite Fran aise i But i Suite Fran aise i was only the coda to the brief yet remarkably prolific career of this nearly forgotten magnificent novelist Here in one volume are four of N mirovsky s other novels all of them newly translated by the award winning Sandra Smith and all except DAVID GOLDER available in English for the first time br br br br DAVID GOLDER is the novel that established N irovsky s reputation in France in when she was twenty six It is a novel about greed and lonliness the story of a self made business man once wealthy now suffering a breakdown as he nears the lonely end of his life THE COURILOF AFFAIR tells the story of a Russian revolutionary living out his last days and his recollections of his first infamous assassination Also included are two short gemlike novels THE BALL a pointed exploration of adolescence and the obsession with status among the bourgeoisie and SNOW IN AUTUMN an evocative tale of White Russian migr s in Paris after the Russian Revolution br br br br Introduced by celebrated novelist Claire Messud this collection of four spellbinding novels offers the same storytelling mastery powerful clarity of language and empathic grasp of human behavior that would give shape to i Suite Fran aise i br br Book Jacket Status Jacketed, b The first two stories of a masterwork once thought lost written by a pre WWII bestselling author who was deported to Auschwitz and died before her work could be completed b br br By the early l s when Ukrainian born Ir ne N mirovsky began working on what would become Suite Fran aise the first two parts of a planned five part novel she was already a highly successful writer living in Paris But she was also a Jew and in she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz a month later she was dead at the age of thirty nine Two years earlier living in a small village in central France where she her husband and their two small daughters had fled in a vain attempt to elude the Nazis she d begun her novel a luminous portrayal of a human drama in which she herself would become a victim When she was arrested she had completed two parts of the epic the handwritten manuscripts of which were hidden in a suitcase that her daughters would take with them into hiding and eventually into freedom Sixty four years later at long last we can read N mirovsky s literary masterpiece br br The first part A Storm in June opens in the chaos of the massive exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion during which several families and individuals are thrown together under circumstances beyond their control They share nothing but the harsh demands of survival some trying to maintain lives of privilege others struggling simply to preserve their lives but soon all together they will be forced to face the awful exigencies of physical and emotional displacement and the annihilation of the world they know In the second part Dolce we enter the increasingly complex life of a German occupied provincial village Coexisting uneasily with the soldiers billeted among them the villagers from aristocrats to shopkeepers to peasants cope as best they can Some choose resistance others collaboration and as their community is transformed by these acts the lives of these these men and women reveal nothing less than the very essence of humanity br br Suite Fran aise is a singularly piercing evocation at once subtle and severe deeply compassionate and fiercely ironic of life and death in occupied France and a brilliant profoundly moving work of art
