Review:

"A masterpiece" (Sunday Times)

"Quite outstanding, full of beauty, pain and truth" (Anne Chisholm Sunday Telegraph)

"An irresistible work. Suite Francaise clutches the heart" (Carmen Callil The Times)

"The work of a genuine artist" (Julian Barnes Guardian)

"Magnificent" (The Times)

"Suite Francaise is one of those rare books that demands to be read" (Helen Dunmore Guardian)

"Suite Francaise is the most powerful account of that time and place many of us have ever read...this extraordinary woman's work is receiving the celebration it deserves. I defy anyone to read it without tears of admiration and pity for its author" (Max Hastings Daily Mail)

"A book of exceptional literary quality, it has the kind of intimacy found in the diary of Anne Frank" (Times Literary Supplement)

"What is to me most remarkable is the degree to which Nemirovsky, writing so close to the event, has nevertheless distilled it to extract the significance of each moment and episode. it is literature, not journalism... Her novel is in the classic French tradition, intelligent and sensuous" (Scotsman)

From the Publisher:

A major event – the first publication of a lost masterpiece written in 2nd WW France and telling the spellbinding story of a group of characters living under Nazi occupation.
