Reviews

  • Irène Némirovsky is the literary discovery of the decade

    Sunday Times
  • Slender, but engrossing, novel... Némirovsky's subtle twist and typically jewelled prose presents the glittering enormity of Gladys, an unsympathetic but vividly realised character who dominates this tale in a fascinating portrait of paranoid self-absorption

    Financial Times
  • Nemirovsky's tale of a woman on trial for shooting her young lover rings more contemporary bells than we might think at first

    Lesley McDowell, The Independent on Sunday
  • Fast-paced and highly dramatic, it offers a fascinating glimpse into an inter-war world of privilege, wealth and Darwinian social combat

    Simon Shaw, New Statesman
