The wine of solitude

Némirovsky, Irène, 1903-1942

Imbued with melancholy, and regret, this work explores the troubled relationship between a young girl, her distant, self-absorbed mother and her mother's lover, Max. We follow the family through the Great War and the Russian Revolution, as the young Hélène grows from a dreamy, unhappy child into an angry young woman
