Iréne Nemirovsky was born in Kiev in the Ukraine February 11, 1903, she died at Auschwitz August 17, 1942. Her most famous work is Suite Francaise.
I have read and posted on eleven novels by Iréne Nemirovsky, several short stories and an excellant biography. I have placed her image in the side bar of my blog. As of now I am behind seven posts, partially due to an equipment failure now remedied, so I hope I can be forgiven if I post briefly on her posthumously published novel, written it is estimated in 1939.
Fire in the Blood was found, completed, in her archives. It is set in a rural French village just before World War Two. It is the story of the trials and tribulations, loves and passions of the town residents. It is in part a study of the impact of the passions generated by the fire in the blood. All of her work is worth reading.
