Jezebel, Paperback Book

Description

From the author of the bestselling Suite Francaise. In a French courtroom, the trial of a woman is taking place.

Gladys Eysenach is no longer young, but she is still beautiful, elegant, cold.

She is accused of shooting dead her much-younger lover.

As the witnesses take the stand and the case unfolds, Gladys relives fragments of her past: her childhood, her absent father, her marriage, her turbulent relationship with her daughter, her decline, and then the final irrevocable act.

With the depth of insight and pitiless compassion we have come to expect from the author of Suite Francaise, Irene Nemirovsky shows us the soul of a desperate woman obsessed with her lost youth.
