Item Details

Irene Nemirovsky was born in 1903 in Kiev to a well-off Jewish family. This biography traces her odyssey first to St Petersburg, where her father was a successful financier, and then, as the family was forced to flee the Russian Revolution, to Finland, Sweden and finally France in 1919. It tells the story of a 20th-century woman and of her times.
