Fire in the Blood by the inimitable Irene Nemirovsky is my first reread of my Reading the World project I adore what I have read of her work to date it is both measured and incredibly beautiful Translated by Sandra Smith as much of her work seems to be Fire in the Blood is set in a rural village in the historical region of Burgundy France also the setting of the work which she is best known for Suite FrancaisePublished posthumously in France in 2007 and in Britain a year later Fire in the Blood was the second Nemirovsky which I read whilst fittingly on holiday in the Dordogne The volume opens with a foreword by Olivier Philipponat and Patrick Lienhardt who both wrote an insightful biography of the author as well as discovering the full length manuscript of Fire in the Blood amongst her effectsThe novella for a novella it is really running to just 158 pages in the pictured edition tells of Sylvestre known throughout as Silvio his cousin Helene her second husband Francoise sic and of the truths deaths marriages children houses and mills that bind them with love and hatred deception and betrayal As far as themes go within literature this certainly covers a lot of basesFrom the outset everything within the novella is so well evoked Nemirovsky opens up a vivid world gone by in the first few exuisitely measured sentences We were drinking a light punch the kind we had when I was young and all sitting around the fire my Erard cousins their children and I It was an autumn evening the whole sky red above the sodden fields of turned earth The fiery sunset promised a strong wind the next day the crows were cawing This large icy house is full of draughts Silvio then gives us crumbs of detail about himself on the first page he writes I am old poor and unmarried holed up in a farmer s hovel in the middle of the woods Unsurprisingly to anyone at all familiar with Nemirovsky s work the character descriptions within Fire in the Blood are excellently wrought Colette tells her Uncle Silvio But you look like a faun with your wide forehead turned up nose pointed ears and laughing eyes Sylvestre creature of the woods That suits you very well Silvio s further descriptions of his own person too are memorable and unflinchingly candid For I sometimes feel I ve been rejected by life as if washed ashore by the tide I ve ended up on a lovely beach an old boat still solid and seaworthy but whose paint has faded in the water eaten away by salt Nemirovsky s use of the male perspective is realistic and often uite profound Through Silvio the reader is brought into the heart of a small and rural community as though a member him or herself the people around here have a kind of genius for living in the most difficult way possible No matter how rich they are they refuse pleasure even happiness with implacable determination wary perhaps of its deceptive promise Smith s translation is faultless there is a wonderful poetic fluidity to the piece from beginning to end Fire in the Blood is an incredibly human work which has been exuisitely written Her descriptions are reminiscent of Katherine Mansfield s in their vivid snapshots of beauty and clarity Like Mansfield s her work is almost entirely sensually appealing There is so much depth within this short and perfectly crafted novel For those unfamiliar with Nemirovsky s work Fire in the Blood is a great taster of her wonderful stylistic choices and engrossing storylines

About ten years ago I took a course in French Women Writers in translation Ir ne N mirovsky wasn t included but we read a lot of Colette de Beauvoir Duras and YourcenarThere s a particular tone of writing they all have in common maybe it s a fundamental to the way women write in French or maybe it s fundamental to the experience of being a French woman although Yourcenar immigrated to eastern Canada I don t know But this fit in beautifully with what I read and loved beforeI m splitting a difference with four stars N mirovsky had finished a draft of this novel at the time of her arrest and execution at Auschwitz The characterization is lovely the language is exuisite the story itself complete and achingly beautiful if spare But I can imagine her adding a little As it stands there isn t a single excess word Every detail is vital which is why it took me days to read such a slim volume I had to stop and consider and let every word sink in I m glad I did because all the characters feel vivid and real to me but I m not uite content with the build to the ending s final turnI haven t read Suite Fran aise yet but now I m very much looking forward to it
