Synopsis: Irene Nemirovsky's own life was as dramatic as any fiction. Few writers enjoy posthumous success as astonishing as hers after the international triumph of Suite Francaise. She was born in 1903 in Kiev to a well-off Jewish family. They fled the Russian revolution, eventually settling in France where, with the publication of David Golder in 1929 - delivered to a publisher just before the birth of her first daughter - Irene swiftly became an acclaimed and successful writer. When France fell to the Nazis, Irene and her family took refuge in a small Burgundy village, but in July 1942 she was arrested by the French police and deported to Auschwitz. Irene died a month later, aged only thirty-nine. Her biographers take advantage of access to diaries, unpublished documents and surviving family members to examine Irene's remarkable life, from pogroms in Ukraine to gilded holidays in Biarritz, and her troubled relationship with her vain, difficult mother. The result is a brilliant portrait of an exceptional writer and of a turbulent period of European history.

About the Author: Olivier Philipponnat and Patrick Lienhardt are the authors of an acclaimed biography of Roger Stephane. For this biography of Nemirovsky they have had unprecedented access to unpublished letters, notebooks and archives.
