Some Thoughts on Irène Némirovsky

If you’ve read my review of Suite Française (it’s linked elsewhere on this blog), or followed my comments on my “other” blog (the one that focuses on the practice of writing), you already know that as much as I admire this novel, my positive feelings are more qualified insofar as its author, Irène Némirovsky, is concerned. This new Jewish Week article pretty much sums up the situation and the questions I’m still asking myself. (Thanks to MD for making sure I didn’t miss it!)
