About this Item

First Edition. Sugar designed dustjacket. One of only two novels by this author to be published in the United States during her lifetime. "A business man belonging to that international and shady world of casinos - that of Biarritz in this instance - condemned to make money ceaselessly and in spite of himself by his family and by force of circumstances. His character, that of his wife Gloria, and of their daughter Joyce, are brilliantly presented from the word 'go'. The ignominious use which his women make of him, the disgust which this Jew, sure of his power, comes to feel for life, for men and for money." Nemirovsky was a French novelist who died at the age of 39 in Auschwitz, Nazi Germany-occupied Poland. She was arrested by the Nazis for being classified as a Jew under the racial laws, which did not take into account her conversion to Roman Catholicism. Némirovsky is now best known as the author of the unfinished Suite Française, two novellas portraying life in France between 4 June 1940 and 1 July 1941, the period during which the Nazis occupied Paris. These works are considered remarkable because they were written during the actual period itself, and yet are the product of considered reflection, rather than just a journal of events, as might be expected considering the personal turmoil experienced by the author at the time. Near Fine but for modest stain to top page edge, in near Very Good price-clipped dustjacket, top spine end chipped, closed tear at lower spine area, tiny chips and wear at edges. 0.0.
