Her mother was a figure, a name, Irène Némirovsky, a once popular novelist, a Russian émigré from an immensely rich family, a Jew who didn't consider herself one and who even contributed to collaborationist periodicals, and a woman who died in Auschwitz because she was a Jew. To her daughter she was a tragic enigma and a stranger. It was to come to terms with that stranger that Gille wrote, in The Mirador, her mother's memoirs ... The Mirador is a haunted and haunting book, an unflinching reckoning with the tragic past, and a triumph not only of the imagination but of love"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
