Fire in the Blood

Fire in the Blood - Irène Némirovsky 3.5/5

A contemplative novella exploring the contradictions between the fiery ardor of youth and the cold complacency of old age, against the backdrop of a close-knit rural community in the French countryside. The writing lacks polish but it is good enough to warrant further delving into Irène Némirovsky's oeuvre.
