Suite française by Irène Némirovsky ( Book )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 3,934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[In this novel], "A Storm in June," is set in the chaos of the tumultuous exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion. As the German army approaches, Parisians seize what belongings they can and flee the city, the wealthy and the poor alike searching for means to escape. Thrown together under circumstances beyond their control, a group of families and individuals with nothing in common but the harsh demands of survival find themselves facing the annihilation of their world, and human nature is revealed for what it is - sometimes tender, sometimes terrifying ... "Dolce," is set in a German-occupied village near Paris, where, riven by jealousy and resentment, resistance and collaboration, the lives of the townspeople reveal nothing less than the essence of the French identity. The delicate, secret love affair between a German soldier and the French woman in whose house he has been billeted plays out dangerously against the background of Occupation.-Dust jacket
Fire in the blood by Irène Némirovsky ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An old man looks back on a chequered life with secret regrets, concealing a truth he will not reveal until the end. Fire in the Blood is a small and beautiful chamber piece which starts quietly, lyrically, but then races away with revelations and narrative twists in a story about young women forced into marriages with old men, about mothers and daughters, stepmothers and stepdaughters, youthful passions and the regrets of old age, about peasant communities and the way they hide their secrets. Némirovsky looks at her characters, both young and old, with the same clear-eyed distance and humanity as she displayed in Suite Française, unpeeling layer after layer. Atmospheric and haunting as Embers and with the crystalline perfection of Chekhov, Fire in the Blood is a gripping literary find.. "--publisher's website

"Beginning in a fictionalized Kiev, The Wine of Solitude follows the Karol family through the Great War and the Russian Revolution, as the young Hélène grows from a dreamy, unhappy child into a strong willed young-woman. From the hot Kiev summers to the cruel winters of St Petersburg and eventually to springtime in Paris, the would-be writer Hélène blossoms, despite her mother's neglect, into a clear-eyed observer of the life around her. Here is a powerful tale 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."--P. [4] of cover

'The sky seemed to rip apart from end to end to pour fire down upon me' Meursault will not conform. When his mother dies, he refuses to show his emotions simply to satisfy the expectations of others. And when he commits a random act of violence on a sun-drenched beach, his lack of remorse only compounds his guilt in the eyes of society and the law. Albert Camus' portrayal of a man confronting the absurdity of human life became a classic. Yet it is also a book filled with quiet joy in the physical world, and this new translation sensitively renders the subtleties and dreamlike atmosphere of The Outsider

All our worldly goods by Irène Némirovsky ( Recording )
2 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pierre and Agnès are in love, but Pierre is engaged to someone else approved by his snobbish mother and the tyrannical family patriarch, the industrialist Julien Hardelot. Their love provokes a family feud which cascades down the generations. Even when war is imminent and Pierre is called up, the old man is unforgiving. Like Balzac or Galsworthy vividly chronicles the vicissitudes of a family, though on a tighter, more intimate scale. Full of drama and pathos, this is Némirovsky at the height of her powers. The exodus and flow of refugee humanity in both wars sets the stage for Suite Française; but this is Northern France, near the Somme, and the town of Saint-Elme is razed, along with the Hardelot factory and some of his fortune. Taut, evocative and beautifully paced, All Our Worldly Goods points up with heartbreaking, detailed clarity how history repeats itself, tragically, shockingly. It opens in the Edwardian era, on a fashionable Normandy beach, and ends with a changed world, under Nazi occupation

Originally intended to be in five parts, the two that form this work are complete in themselves. Part One, "A storm in June," is set in the chaos and mayhem of the massive 1940 exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion. Part Two, "Dolce," opens in the provincial town of Bussy during the first influx of German soldiers.
