Irene Némirovsky died at Auschwitz in 1942, before her fortieth birthday. Her posthumously published SUITE FRANCAISE became an immediate bestseller, and this novella, set in the prewar days of rural France, is a fitting addition to her legacy. Mark Bramhall tells of Silvio, who left his village a lifetime ago, seeking travel and adventure. With his inheritance spent, the middle-aged adventurer returns home to a farmer's hovel, enjoying his solitude while reflecting on his youth and missed love. With an easy-on-the-ears French accent, Bramhall's voice holds the passion of youth, the regret of middle age, and the bitter wisdom of experience. He takes Némirovsky's elegant, spare tale and breathes life into it. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
