A collection of never-before-translated stories by the bestselling author of Suite Francaise, this is a gorgeous, gemlike volume with the same attention to detail that won Irene Nemirovsky so many fans. Written between 1934 and 1942, these ten stories mine the same terrain as her bestselling novels: a keen eye for the details of social class; the tensions between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives; the manners and mannerisms of the French bourgeoisie; and questions of religion and personal identity. Moving from the drawing rooms of pre-war Paris to the lives of men and women in wartime France, here is the beautiful work of a writer at the height of her tragically short career.
