Suite FrançaiseAudiobook CD - 2006
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Originally intended to be a five-part cycle about life in Nazi-occupied France during World War II, Suite Française consists of the first two parts. The first, entitled “Storm in June”, focuses on chaotic life in Paris just before the imminent Nazi invasion in 1940, while the second, “Dolce”, chronicles French village life under the ensuing German occupation. Sadly, Némirovsky never completed the other three parts of her work, as she was sent to Auschwitz because of her Jewish heritage and died there in July 1942.
Newly discovered and published more than 60 years after it was written, Suite Française stands as an elegant, yet tragic, reminder that life can deliver both beauty and pain amidst the uncertainty of troubled times.
