Pequena biografia
Irène Némirovsky was brought up in St. Petersburg, Russia by a French governess, becoming completely fluent in the French language. She also learned to speak Yiddish, Finnish, Polish, and English. Following the Russian Revolution, the family lived for a year in Finland and then moved to Paris. Irène attended the Sorbonne and started writing fiction at about age 18. In 1926, she married Michel Epstein, a banker, with whom she had two daughters: Denise, born in 1929; and Élisabeth, born in 1937. In 1929, Irène published David Golder, her first novel, which was an immediate success and was adapted into a film in 1930. That same year, her novel Le Bal was published and became a play and a movie.
Today Irène Némirovsky is best-remembered for her unfinished book entitled Suite Française, two novellas written during the start of the German Occupation of France in World War II as it was happening. Despite having converted to Catholicism, Irène Némirovsky was arrested and deported by the Nazis to Auschwitz, where she died of typhus at 39 years of age. Her husband died in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Their daughter Denise was able to keep the notebook containing the manuscript for Suite Française, but did not read it for 50 years, thinking it was her mother's private journal. However, in the late 1990s, she made arrangements to donate her mother's papers to a French archive and decided to examine the notebook. Upon discovering what it contained, she had it published in France, where it became a bestseller in 2004.

Teñida de marcados ecos autobiográficos, la novela se construye con retazos de la infancia y del exilio, la crisis de identidad, las historias de amor, todo sujeto a los azarosos caprichos del destino.
Publicada por primera vez en 1940 -año en que Irene Nemirovsky huyó de París en compañía de su marido y sus dos pequeñas hijas para refugiarse en un pueblo de la Borgoña-, esta es la última obra que la autora de la magistral Suite francesa publicó en vida, dos años antes de su deportación y asesinato en Auschwitz.

Ada y Harry Sinner, parientes lejanos, son dos jóvenes judíos procedentes de niveles sociales muy distintos a quienes un recuerdo infantil ha dejado una huella imborrable en sus vidas. Ada abandonó Ucrania poco antes de la revolución bolchevique, se ha casado con su primo Ben y lucha por abrirse camino como pintora. Harry, por su parte, ha contraído matrimonio con una joven francesa, hermosa, rica y católica, y se mueve en el mundo de las altas finanzas. Pero la fascinación que siente al contemplar dos cuadros de Ada en un escaparate lo llevan a recordar el mundo que ambos han dejado atrás.

Con su destreza habitual para el retrato psicológico, Nemirovsky delinea con claridad el torbellino de sentimientos de un clásico triángulo amoroso.

Un universo rico y perturbador, un cuento filosófico sobre un jóven héroe, víctima de la fuerza destructora de su propio genio.
En las tabernas de un puerto del Mar Negro, Ismael, un niño prodigio, canta los dolores y las alegrías de miserables y excluidos. Su talento precoz fascina a un poeta venido a menos que le introducirá en la corte de la «Princesa». Ismael se convertirá en el juguete de esa caprichosa mujer y conocerá el lujo de la sociedad aristocrática. Pero los mismos que le mimaban y aclamaban, lo abandonarán muy pronto a un trágico destino…… (mais)

Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky is a brilliant but sadly unfinished tale set in occupied France in the first years of the Second World War. Nemirovsky, who was Jewish, was killed in a concentration camp having only written two of her five planned novels.

The first book follows several Parisians on the days after France falls to the Germans, and the general exodus from the capital city ahead of the arrival of German troops. The second book is set in an occupied agricultural village where a regiment of German soldiers is billeted, and tells of the relationship between the conquerers and the villagers. It is a beautifully detailed story, full of description, so vivid that I could, with ease, picture characters and homes and fields throughout, which only increased the attraction of the book.

Although the novel is classified as historical fiction, I think that is important to remember that it was written during the Second World War and is probably very close to fact, given that Nemirovsky lived in Paris when France was invaded by Germany. There is undoubtedly verisimillitude in the intricate tales, and first-hand knowledge of the availabilty of food and the conditions of the people taking part in the general panicked rush from Paris to the countryside. Although it is lively fiction, it is also partly historical document, and a lot can be learned from it.

I really loved this book. It was a slow read, as the novel unfolds gradually, and because I had such a busy week without much time to read, I kept having to go back a few pages to figure out what was going on when I'd put the book down two days ago. I became very attached to some of the characters, particularly the Michauds and Lucile. This is a book that I will read again, and which I will recommend to others.

Todo ocurre en una tranquila villa de provincias francesa, a principios de los años treinta. Silvio, el narrador, ha dilapidado su fortuna recorriendo mundo. A los sesenta años, sin mujer ni hijos, sólo le queda esperar la muerte mientras se dedica a observar la comedia humana en este rincón de Francia donde, aparentemente, nunca sucede nada. Un día, sin embargo, una muerte trágica quiebra la placidez de esa sociedad cerrada y hierática. A partir de allí, emergen uno tras otro los secretos del pasado, hechos ocultados cuidadosamente que demuestran cómo la pasión juvenil, ese ardor de la sangre, puede trastornar el curso de la vida. Como en el juego de las cajas chinas, las confesiones se suceden hasta llegar a una última y perturbadora revelación.

Concebida como una compleja intriga, El ardor de la sangre describe, en el tono coloquial del naturalista, un universo predador de una extraordinaria hipocresía. Aquí tenemos a esos «tipos bien definidos» que la autora echaba en falta, fariseos como sólo el campo francés es capaz de producir… «La gente vive metida en casa, encerrada en su propiedad, desconfía del vecino, recoge su trigo, cuenta su dinero y no se ocupa de nada más.» Mientras todos señalan a Brigitte con el dedo, una paciente hostilidad se instala en el pueblo. El silencio mantiene el terror en equilibrio. «Realmente, esta región perdida y montaraz, opulenta y recelosa, tiene algo que recuerda tiempos pretéritos.» Todo está preparado para el drama de Suite francesa. ¿Cómo no destacar, en las páginas que siguen, la «malevolencia asombrosamente activa» de los lugareños? Será el tema de Dolce, segunda parte de Suite francesa, que reconstruye la vida en un pueblo francés, que no es otro que Issy-L’Évêque, bajo la Ocupación.
