A French Connection

Suite Francaise book coverIrène Némirovsky’s perfect portrait of the French people during the terrible years of 1940-1942, Suite Française, is vividly enacted by performers Daniel Oreskes and Barbara RosenblatAudioFile magazine, which named the recording an Earphones Award winner, describes it as “a virtually flawless production that will repay multiple listenings.”  Transport yourself first to Paris during a chaotic evacuation and then to a small village struggling to adapt under German occupation.

Suite Française, along with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, is a featured selection of Book Crossing, an intercontinental event shared with our sister city, Sèvres, France.  Come join the discussion on October 10 or comment online.
