book, and know its creator, by skimming a few paragraphs Short, punchy sentences, hyper masculinity, and casual misogyny mean I m reading Hemingway if I can t understand what I m reading, it s because I m trying Faulkner and if I ve fallen asleep, I know I ve got something by Melville in my han Unless you re reading a memoir or I picked this one up because it resembled a historical romance I believe the cover to be one of the most powerful and beautiful, just o so right for this particular book that I could scream Then I found out what the tiny particles of pathos all seemed to portend

until I started to read it, and got swept up in the story, the characters, and Nemirovsky s merciless eye for human grace and ridiculousness, often both encapsulated in the same moments The book
