The Block

A blog for authors and readers by publishers. By Wordsmack - a South African speculative science fiction publisher. Wordsmack accepts short stories, novellas and novels on a year-long submissions basis.

Suite Française - Irène Némirovsky, Sandra Smith The story behind this book is more amazing than the book itself. The woman who wrote it died in the second world war and her daughter only discovered the complete thing in the last few years. Crazy, I know!
The book itself is a bit hard to get into, but it is very well written and i really enjoyed it in the end. It is a snapshot of occupied france without the possibility of reflection by the author afterwards... Quite interesting!
