Product Description
<b>A never-before-translated collection by the bestselling author of </b><i><b>Suite Française</b><br></i><br>Written between 1934 and 1942, these ten gem-like stories mine the same terrain of Némirovsky's bestselling novel <i>Suite Française</i>: 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; questions of religion and personal identity. Moving from the drawing rooms of pre-war Paris to the lives of men and women in wartime France, here we find the beautiful work of a writer at the height of her tragically short career.
