Dimanche and Other Stories is the first volume of the short stories to have been translated into English. There are ten, written between 1934 and 1942, two of which prefigure Suite Française. Their settings are bourgeois Paris, where Némirovsky’s parents lived after they left Russia, Biarritz, and the Russia of...

her childhood. Each story is a novel in miniature: whether describing the impatience of a girl waiting for her lover, the tortured relationships of a large family, or the emotions of someone fleeing the German invasion, Némirovsky is always an acute observer, delicate, perceptive, ironic.

Kate Saunders in The Times called the stories ‘finished down to the last full stop – forming the most ravishing collection I have read for years.’
