  • A wonderfully atmospheric novel...captivating and searingly honest... A brilliant coming of age novel

    Helen Dunmore, Guardian, Books of the Year
  • Haunting...profound...exquisitely wrought

    Independent on Sunday
  • The tangle of this unhappy family is beautifully and ruthlessly analysed... The relationship between mother and daughter is described with uncompromising lucidity... Némirovsky evokes the places of her childhood with a sensuous clarity

  • The Wine of Solitude is an end-of-innocence story... It is Némirovsky's powers of social observation...the implacable eye for the nuances of human conduct, that make The Wine of Solitude so memorable

    Financial Times
  • Beautifully written... Her ability to evoke the feeling of time and especially place is remarkable
