A wonderful, panoramic novel and an achingly poignant love story that goes back to Irène Némirovsky's roots, from the bestselling author of Suite Française.
Ada grows up motherless in the Jewish pogroms of a Ukrainian city in the early years of the twentieth century. In the same city, Harry Sinner, the cosseted son of a city financier, belongs to a very different world. Eventually, in search of a brighter future, Ada moves to Paris and makes a living painting scenes from the world she has left behind. Harry Sinner also comes to Paris to mingle in exclusive circles, until one day he buys two paintings which remind him of his past and the course of Ada's life changes once more.
But then recession and revolutions shake previously rich regimes. As summer draws to a close, Ada's world is disintegrating, and she is faced with a fateful decision.

IRÈNE NÉMIROVSKY was born in Kiev in 1903, the daughter of a Jewish banker. In 1918 her family fled the Russian Revolution for France where she became a bestselling novelist, author of David Golder, Le Bal, The Courilof Affair, All Our Worldly Goods and other works published in her lifetime or soon after, as well as of the recent posthumously published Suite Française and Fire in the Blood. The Dogs and the Wolves, now appearing for the first time in English, was published in France in spring 1940, just months before France fell to the Nazis. Némirovsky died in Auschwitz in 1942.Review:
"The Dogs and the Wolves is a bitter, angry book reflecting nastiness between Jews, as well as the prejudice and persecution they suffered in France between the world wars... the novel builds towards a final scene of redemptive tenderness: a piercing note of compassion and hope after all the grimness that Némirovsky has exposed with characteristic boldness."
--Ruth Scurr, The Times
"Written with tremendous assurance and finess, The Dogs and the Wolves is an outstanding achievement of European fiction."
--Peter Kemp, Sunday Times
"Nemirovsky was incapable of producing anything less than an enchanting novel. She has an irresistible talent for creating character and incident which makes this story as much a page-turner as anything she has written."
--Carmen Callil, Guardian
"A sad and beautifully written tale."
--Caroline Moorehead, Literary Review
