By the early l s when Ukrainian born Ir ne N mirovsky began working on what would become Suite Fran aise the first two parts of a planned five part novel she was already a highly successful writer living in Paris But she was also a Jew and in she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz a month later she was dead at the age of thirty nine Two years earlier living in a small village in central France where she her husband and their two small daughters had fled in a vain attempt to elude the Nazis she d begun her novel a luminous portrayal of a human drama in which she herself would become a victim When she was arrested she had completed two parts of the epic the handwritten manuscripts of which were hidden in a suitcase that her daughters would take with them into hiding and eventually into freedom Sixty four years later at long last we can read N mirovsky s literary masterpiece .

The first part A Storm in June opens in the chaos of the massive exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion during which several families and individuals are thrown together under circumstances beyond their control They share nothing but the harsh demands of survival some trying to maintain lives of privilege others struggling simply to preserve their lives but soon all together they will be forced to face the awful exigencies of physical and emotional displacement and the annihilation of the world they know In the second part Dolce we enter the increasingly complex life of a German occupied provincial village Coexisting uneasily with the soldiers billeted among them the villagers from aristocrats to shopkeepers to peasants cope as best they can Some choose resistance others collaboration and as their community is transformed by these acts the lives of these these men and women reveal nothing less than the very essence of humanity .

Suite Fran aise is a singularly piercing evocation at once subtle and severe deeply compassionate and fiercely ironic of life and death in occupied France and a brilliant profoundly moving work of art by Irène Némirovsky, Sandra Smith
