Reviews

  • "Written with tremendous assurance and finesse, The Dogs and the Wolves is an outstanding achievement of European fiction"

    Sunday Times
  • "The pleasure of this fine novel lies in its depiction of a doomed love affair... Némirovsky's exquisite descriptions of character reveal a brilliantly sharp eye"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Nemirovsky was incapable of producing anything less than an enchanting novel. She has an irresistible talent for creating character and incident which makes this story as much a page-turner as anything she has written"

    Carmen Callil, Guardian
  • "Nemirovksy is a deeply engaged observer of her characters, and her depiction of the inner lives of both Jews and Gentiles in Sandra Smith's admirable translation of this exquisitely detailed novel, has the fine, authentic ring of artistic truth"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "She elegantly uses traditional orchestration, which makes her works, for all their weighty concerns, universally accessible and stirringly romantic"
