To face the awful exigencies of physical and emotional displacement and the annihilation of the world they know In the second part Dolce we enter the increasingly complex life of a German occupied provincial village Coexisting uneasily with the soldiers billeted among them the villagers from aristocrats to shopkeepers to peasants cope as best they can Some choose resistance others collaboration and as their community is transformed by these acts the lives of these these men and women reveal nothing less than the very essence of humanitySuite Française is a singularly piercing evocation at once subtle and severe deeply compassionate and fiercely ironic of life and death in occupied France and a brilliant profoundly moving work of ar MUST READ MUST READ Wonderful unfinished novel by famous Jewish French author Interesting story is behind publication of this novel The manuscript stayed in a box for decades because the daughters of the author thought it is diary but it was not One of my favourite novels and I am proud that I was its Serbian editor U Srbiji je knjigu objavila Laguna predivna knjiga veoma dirljiva

MOBI Suite française

Suite françaiseThe first two stories of a masterwork once thought lost written by a pre WWII bestselling author who was deported to Auschwitz and died before her work could be completedBy the early l940s when Ukrainian born Irène Némirovsky began working on what would become Suite Française the first two parts of a planned five part novel she was already a highly successful writer living in Paris But she was also a Jew and in 1942 she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz a month later she was dead at the age of thirty nine Two years earlier living in a small village in central France where she her husband and their two small daughters had fled in a vain attempt to elude the Nazis she'd begun her novel a luminous portrayal of a human drama in A masterpiece And this is the rough draftI've spent the last day trying to decide if I loved this book because I'm sentimental The author Irene Nemirovsky was a Russian Jew who wrote this while living in occupied France A respected author she had married Micheal Epstein who had also fled Russia when the Bolsheviks revolted They had sincerely adopted France as their home country converted to Catholicism and were the parents of two daughters She began writing this novel while simultaneously experiencing it She and her family had lived in Paris but had fled when German troops invaded the city While most of the country was occupied she moved to a French village and tried to survive amidst the new harsh laws concerning anyone of Jewish decent She could no longer publish her works could not cash checks could not travel freely Her life and freedom as well as those of her husband and daughters were threatened daily She had every excuse to be as frightened and as hysteric as anyoneYet she managed to write an unbelievably candid look at Frenchmen in their hour of need Her intention was to write a five part novella in the idea of a musical symphony much like Beethoven's Fifth examining the behavior of people from different classes of society She succeeded in writing two of the five parts Storm in June and Dolce Storm in June begins as rumors of a German invasion into Paris reach a frenzied level and characters decide whether or not evacuate their homes The attitude priorities and expectations vary greatly between the elite and working class Desperation brings out the very worst in most but not all Food gas shelter the basic needs of any person become scarce and the desire to survive seems to super cede any desire to help a neighbor Nemirovsky is an expert at exposing this without focusing on the misery Instead in her own words she shows the prosperity that contrasts with it one word for misery ten for egotism cowardice closing ranks crime But it's true that it's this very atmosphere I'm breathing It is easy to imagine it the obsession with food Writing about the contrast is very effective `What impresses me is that Nemirovsky was part of this aristocrat class She was privileged To have the ability to understand at all the confusion and need of those without shows great compassion I thinkThe second part of the novel Dolce is uite different Rather than following several loosely related characters she focuses on a small village adjusting to life with the German troop based there Most of the upper class members of the village farmers land owners etc had to house the officers of the German army at the same time their husbands sons and brothers were being held as prisoners of war someplace else Nemirovsky manages to weave in a few of the characters from Storm into the story but the overall pace and feeling is much slower and calmer ahdolce The slower tempo and close proximity force many of the French to look at the Germans as humans rather than simply soldiers Boredom resulting from the restrictions placed on the villagers jealousy and greed as supplies and food are scarce for many cause tensions to run high The most interesting part of this story to me was the relationship between Lucille and the German officer staying at their chateau all the while under the persecution of an unforgiving and pompous mother in law How disappointing when this story ended and there was no Following the two stories are the handwritten notes written by the author Plans for the third part to be titled Captivity were outlined and different story lines attempted The realization that this was all a rough draft boggles my mind They seem sodone and flawless What a loss After the appendix showing Nemirovsky's plans for the novel is another with the letters recovered from her and her family acuaintances editors etc during this time period The tone in these letters is so different from the tone in her notes for the novel It's as if she was somehow push away her fear and trepidation while writing and thinking Her personal correspondence however reveals that she was very aware of the danger facing her Her last letter is written to her husband as she is being taken to a concentration camp Following letters show the desperation of her husband trying to find out where she has been taken and how she can be saved then those stop as he is arrested and also taken to a concentration camp They were both killed at AuschwitzHer daughters were hid by a close friend for years until the war was over Her eldest daughter carried around this manuscript in a suitcase wherever they traveled as a link to her mother and finally had it published and translated sixty years laterI don't think I loved this just because I am sentimental although I love it for that very reason Independent of the author's tragic parallel story is the creation of something uniue and special It is as if someone was holding a mirror up to the French during the war but this mirror is alluring and beautiful so much so that you can't help but pick it up and just gaze But it's than just a look at the French people during a specific period of time It is also a timeless portrait of humanity Highly highly recommended

EBOOK æ EPUB Suite française ä 9781400096275 FREE Ó The first two stories of a masterwork once thought lost written by a pre WWII bestselling author who was deported to Auschwitz and died before her work could be completedBy the early l940s when Ukrainian born Irène Némirovsky began working on what would become SuitWhich she herself would become a victim When she was arrested she had completed two parts of the epic the handwritten manuscripts of which were hidden in a suitcase that her daughters would take with them into hiding and eventually into freedom Sixty four years later at long last we can read Némirovsky's literary masterpiece The first part A Storm in June opens in the chaos of the massive 1940 exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion during which several families and individuals are thrown together under circumstances beyond their control They share nothing but the harsh demands of survival some trying to maintain lives of privilege others struggling simply to preserve their lives but soon all together they will be forced This book jolted me It's rare when I read a book literally from cover to coverand close it nearly in tears This was witten as France was being occupied by the Nazis during the Second World War thus this may well be the first fictional account of World War Two as it was happening Needless to say this is an immensely important book and in my opinion should be reuired reading in history classes This is an unfinished work by a Russian French author who died in Auschwitz before she could complete what she was hoping would be a novel opus written in the style of a piece of music This is definately an ambitious and frustrating read But the readers must take in mind that this is an incomplete draft As a writer I enjoyed reading something unfinished It was wonderful to be able to crawl into someone's imaginative workings as they are happening with all the frayed bits left strung out It helped me in assessing my own approach to the creative process and I think I'll be referring back to this novel time and again to get some pointers on plot devices and flow As a story this is flawed If I was just giving points for the story itself I would only alot it three stars The fourth is for the fact that the appendix's in the back as well as the forword to the French addition are utterly fascinating This is a highly forgotten author and I'm looking forward to reading of her work It pains me that this was never completed On a side note I experienced a strange realization while reading this by finding out that the suburb of Paris where my girlfriend's grandmother lives Drancy is the site of a former concentration campThis gives a fascinatingly detailed account of life during the French Occupation as it was happening through the eyes of a formerly but that has never been known to stop Nazis Jewish woman She has a keen knack for expressing the human experience The lives of those she describes are lives interrupted during war whether it be French peasants or young highly incompetent German soldiers in way over their heads She described the young German soldiers with a tenderness and empathy I thought incredible Thus subverting their power by describing them as young boys caught up in something they have marginal understanding of The most poignant scenes for me where those in which she described what happens to young people during wartime How all the young French boys are away and the young girls secretly idolize their captors and their captors in turn court the young girlsafter all they're still teenagers That to me was heart breaking Reading this over sixty years after it was written and in another pseudo war makes me realize how useless the power displays of men playing king of the hill really areespecially when the lives of everyday people are involved
