  • A gorgeous novel - witty, tender and true

    Financial Times
  • A remarkable novel...beautifully translated... Her voice, compassionate yet always shrewd, with its sharp portrait of France at war and during the optimistic and confused Twenties and early Thirties, is always distinctive

    Literary Review
  • Némirovsky's great bourgeois tragedy is modest in scale but epic in scope. Her highly distinctive style, the delicate but relentless accretion of finely observed detail, produces a story in which universal cataclysm mirrored in apparently insignificant personal destiny, to extraordinary resonant effect

    Jane Shilling, Sunday Telegraph
  • A coolly crafted traditional family novel

    A S Byatt, Guardian
  • Némirovsky's last stories are a living history of the occupation, written in real time
