The Fires of Autumn is one of bestselling author Irène Némirovsky’s later works; first published in France in 1957, many years after her death at Auschwitz. In this novel she tells the story of idealistic young Bernard Jacquelain, who fought in World War I only to return home to Paris a changed man. Estranged from those around him, and desperate to achieve success, he moves into a world of excess and corruption.
