Olivier Philipponnat, Patrick Lienhardt. Although its title says the life of Irene Nemirovsky, it is also the "lives" of all her books and the characters, therein, so it is very encyclopedic in scope. Euan Cameron (Translation). Having read Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky, I very much wanted to read a biography about the author. Although I skipped a lot of this, her life was utterly fascinating, living thru the Jewish pogroms and the Revolution in Russia, to end up a huge literary success in France. And then to be sent off to the death camps, Auschwitz in her case, by the French during the Occupation of France by the Germans.

Irène Némirovsky, described by the authors as "a French writer whom fate had caused to be born in Kiev", enjoyed a brief literary celebrity in the 1930s. Thereafter she vanished from public consciousness until 2004. Then came posthumous publication of two completed parts of an intended trilogy on the wartime experience of France, Suite Française, consciously modelled upon War and Peace. It was hailed as a masterpiece, and became a global bestseller. The work was rendered intolerably moving, especially in its sympathetic portrayal of some German characters, by the fate of its author.

A major biography of Irène Némirovksy, author of the acclaimed and internationally bestselling Suite Française — with new material never published in English.Irène Némirovksy's own life was as dramatic as any fiction. And few writers enjoy a posthumous resurgence as astonishing as hers after the international triumph of Suite Française. The authors of this fascinating biography have had access to previously unpublished documents and to surviving family members in Russia, researching there her childhood in the Ukraine, and tracing her odyssey first to St Petersburg, where her father was a successful financier, and then, as the family was forced to flee the Russian Revolution, to Finland, Sweden and finally France in 1919.Meticulously researched and passionately felt, this is a remarkable, panoramic biography of an exceptional writer, a moving portrait of a woman and of her extraordinary times, and a sweeping saga of a turbulent period of European history, holding up a mirror to the world of publishing, intellectual thought, society and the darker shadow of prejudice between the wars.
