The Dogs and the Wolves (1940)

English

review 1: Maybe I should really give this book four stars, as it was quite a story. If you decide to read it, however, brace yourself for a really heavy dose of what we would consider anti-semitism, and Jewish self-hatred, on the part of the author and of the characters. A real window into...
Dimanche and Other Stories (2010)

review 1: Persephone publishes a number of collections of short stories – and they are generally the kind of short stories I love. Dimanche and other stories were all written in the 1930’s and 40’s but not published in English until 2000. This is a truly wonderful collection, beautifully w...
The Wine of Solitude (1935)

English
3.44 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: One of her best novels. Gets off to a slow-burning start but she ratchets up the tension until you wonder where it's going. As with many of her novels there are clear autobiographical elements: pre-Revolutionary Russia, the need to move from place to place, a difficult mother-dau...

review 1: Beautiful WWI through WWII story told from the point of view of the people who loved through it. It gives a glimpse of life in France before WWI, the perils endured by ordinary people durning the invasion, life after between the wars and the begining of WWII. It describes the ...

review 1: This book was chosen for our book club and from the moment I read about the author's life, I was intrigued.Irène Némirovsky was of Russian-Jewish origin and one of the many victims of the Final Solution. She was killed at 39 in Auschwitz, the largest concentration camp in the Naz...
El ardor de la sangre (2007)
language
English

review 1: At its core this book is about the difference between young passionate and all-consuming love and the slow burn of married love. Nemirovsky makes a point that having one does not necessarily mean you have the other as can be seen between the love triangle of Silvio, Helene, and...
Sunnuntai ja muita novelleja (2005)
language

review 1: I loved this book because it's so French! Having enjoyed French literature as a college student years ago, it was bittersweet to revisit the bittersweet days of 1934 in France, and the touching depictions of women young and older, as they approach their need for love and their v...

review 1: Irène Némirovsky is best known for Suite Francaise – her last novel, written just prior to her deportation to Auschwitz where she was killed in 1942. In The Wine of Solitude, Némirovsky gives a glimpse into an earlier period of her life. This autobiographical rendering is beautif...
Le Vin de solitude (1935)
language
English
3.43 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Come al solito il grande talento dell'autrice nei quadri psicologici regala al romanzo una luce particolare. Ne esce un affresco sociale dettagliato ma feroce. Nessuno si salva, ogni personaggio rimane racchiuso fino alla fine nel proprio mondo interiore, fatto di dolore, risenti...

review 1: I like the message of the book of familial love is all that it takes to bring hope to war torn area where civilians are caught in the cross-fire. The book is great in that it allows people to see what war is like for civilians caught in the middle of the battle ground. It allow...

review 1: "Ecco, è finita...Io non lo sapevo che era quella, la felicità....E ora è finita."Come sempre la nostra Irène riesce ad analizzare in maniera straordinaria "l'amore", in tutte le sue sfaccettature, questa volta il rapporto tra due amanti Yvès e Denise che capiranno di amarsi solo...
