Le Bal by Irene Nemirovsky


This is the second bit of writing I've read from Nemirovsky, and I loved it.  I loved it more than Suite Francaise, actually!  This was so clever.  It's short and sweet, but such a fun little read.  Almost makes me wish I had chutzpah like Antoinette when I was only fourteen!  Nemirovsky's work has only recently been discovered and translated, and there are several other stories that I want to get my hands on.  I can only imagine the kind of body of work she would have written had she survived the Holocaust.
