Descripción

A true UK first edition / firts printing, with the full numberline 2 4 6 8 10 97 5 3 1 on the copyright page. A wonderful novel, by the bestselling author of 'Suite Francais'. A love story between Ada, from the poor Jewish area of a Ukraninan city, and Harry, the son of a banker (the 'Dogs' in the title are the rich, assimilated Jews who ignore their distant cousins in the ghetto). A powerful, devastating tale, by an author who survived the Russian Revolution, only to die in Auschwitz in 1942. A very nice copy, not price-clipped, and with no inscriptions or marks. The page edges could be one shade whiter? A fantastic copy of a scarce novel. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 000803

Sinopsis:

A wonderful, panoramic novel and an achingly poignant love story that goes back to Irène Némirovsky's roots, from the bestselling author of Suite Française.

Ada grows up motherless in the Jewish pogroms of a Ukrainian city in the early years of the twentieth century. In the same city, Harry Sinner, the cosseted son of a city financier, belongs to a very different world. Eventually, in search of a brighter future, Ada moves to Paris and makes a living painting scenes from the world she has left behind. Harry Sinner also comes to Paris to mingle in exclusive circles, until one day he buys two paintings which remind him of his past and the course of Ada's life changes once more.

But then recession and revolutions shake previously rich regimes. As summer draws to a close, Ada's world is disintegrating, and she is faced with a fateful decision.

About the Author:

IRÈNE NÉMIROVSKY was born in Kiev in 1903, the daughter of a Jewish banker. In 1918 her family fled the Russian Revolution for France where she became a bestselling novelist, author of David Golder, Le Bal, The Courilof Affair, All Our Worldly Goods and other works published in her lifetime or soon after, as well as of the recent posthumously published Suite Française and Fire in the Blood. The Dogs and the Wolves, now appearing for the first time in English, was published in France in spring 1940, just months before France fell to the Nazis. Némirovsky died in Auschwitz in 1942.
