Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lost masterpiece of French literature, this epic novel of life under Nazi occupation was discovered 62 years after the author's tragic death at Auschwitz. Originally intended to be in five parts, the two that form this work are complete in themselves. Part One, "A Storm in June," is set in the chaos and mayhem of the massive 1940 exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion. Part Two, "Dolce," opens in the provincial town of Bussy during the first influx of German soldiers. Each part features a rich cast of characters--people who never should have met, but come to form ambiguous relationships as they are forced to endure circumstances beyond their control.

Synopsis:

An extraordinary novel of life under Nazi occupation--discovered and published 62 years after the author's tragic death at Auschwitz. Subtle, often fiercely ironic, and deeply compassionate, "Suite Fran<BR>aise" is both a piercing record of its time and a brilliant, profoundly moving work of art. Unabridged. 12 CDs.

About the Author

IRÈNE NÉMIROVSKY was born in Kiev in 1903, the daughter of a wealthy Jewish banker. She and her family fled Russia in 1918 and arrived in France the following year. Educated at the Sorbonne, well-connected and multilingual, she lived a privileged émigré life and became one of the most celebrated authors of her day. Némirovsky published five novels before being arrested by the Vichy government.
In addition to his Broadway appearances, DANIEL ORESKES has appeared in such films as The Thomas Crown and Devil's Advocate. His TV credits include The Sopranos, Third Watch, Law and Order, New York News, and The High Life. He has been honored for his audiobook narration of The House of Scorta and Suite Française.
Multiple Audie® Award winner Barbara Rosenblat has been named a "Voice of the Twentieth Century" by AudioFile magazine. The New York Times writes,"Watch Ms. Rosenblat work...and you get the sense that even an Oscar winner might not be able to pull this off." She created the role of "Mrs. Medlock" in the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical The Secret Garden.
