After the fall: War and occupation in Irne Nmirovsky's suite franaise Book uri icon


  • In this work, the first critical monograph on Suite franaise, Nathan Bracher shows how, first amid the chaos and panic of the May-June 1940 debacle, and then within the unsettling new order of the German occupation, Nmirovsky's novel casts a particularly revealing light on the behavior and attitudes of the French as well as on the highly problematic interaction of France's social classes. 2010 The Catholic University of America Press.
