Book Description

July 1 2007 1897082460 978-1897082461
Suite Francaise is one of the most extraordinary books of the century. The setting is World War II and the year is 1940. After a lightening-quick defeat, France was divided into two parts - the occupied zone controlled by the Nazis and the unoccupied zone controlled by Petain's Vichy government. Nemirovsky and her family were caught in the middle. Irene Nemirovsky intended to document the story of the war going on around her. She completed just two of the sections before she was arrested and transported to Auschwitz. This guide includes information on Irene Nemirovsky, as a writer, a witness, and a participant in the war. Readers will discover the amazing story of how this hidden novel resurfaced sixty-two years after Nemirovsky's death. Readers will learn to appreciate the author's unique perspective of her fellow countrymen and the German occupiers. Uncovering Nemirovsky's surprising use of 'hindsight' will show readers a technique that was simply not logistically possible due to her untimely death. Finally, the guide will consider this author's legacy. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suite Francaise April 27 2008
By Jan B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
My book club read this and it proved to be the most stimulating conversation of all the books we've read! Almost like "on the spot" reporting from Occupied France and great insight into such a diverse cast of characters. Most of us loved it and plan to read more of this author.
