Praise

Praise for Irene Nemirovsky and Jezebel:
 
“Engrossing. . . . A fascinating portrait of paranoid self-absorption.”
Financial Times
 
“Fast-paced and highly dramatic, Jezebel offers a fascinating glimpse into an inter-war world of privilege, wealth and Darwinian social combat.”
New Statesman
 
“Nemirovsky wrote, for all to read at last, some of the greatest, most humane and inclusive fiction that conflict has produced.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Nemirovsky’s scope is like that of Tolstoy: She sees the fullness of humanity and its tenuous arrangements and manages to put them together with a tone that is affectionate, patient, and relentlessly honest.”
O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“Extraordinary. . . . Nemirovsky achieves her penetrating insights with Flaubertian objectivity.”
The Washington Post Book World
 
“Brilliant. . . . [Nemirovsky wrote] with supreme lucidity [and] expressed with great emotional precision her understanding of the country that betrayed her.”
The Nation
 
“Transcendent, astonishing. . . . Like Anne Frank, Irene Nemirovsky was unaware of neither her circumstance nor the growing probability that she might not survive. And still, she writes to us.”
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
