Praise

Praise for The Wine of Solitude:

“A precocity and acuity of perception shine through.”
The New Yorker

“Wonderfully atmospheric . . . . Némirovsky evokes the places of her childhood with a sensuous clarity that shows how much she learned from Tolstoy and Proust. . . . A captivating and searingly honest portrait of the artist as a young woman.”
The Guardian (London)

 “Strangely haunting . . . . Profound, exquisitely wrought. . . . A pitch-perfect evocation of adult duplicity.”  
The Independent (London)

“Fiercely brave. . . . [Here is] the birth of a writer, shaped by war and revolution, told with the devastating cynicism of a young woman in a corrupt and greedy social world, where mothers openly flaunt their lovers and children are humored and ignored. . . . The characters are multidimensional.”
Shelf Awareness

“Breathtaking. . . . Némirovsky’s powers of social observation, [her] implacable eye for the nuances of human conduct . . .  make The Wine of Solitude so memorable.”
The Financial Times


Praise for Irène Némirovsky:

“Extraordinary. . . . Némirovsky achieve[s] her penetrating insights with Flaubertian objectivity.”
The Washington Post Book World
 
“Stunning. . . . [Némirovsky] 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
 
“Némirovsky’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
