Introspective and poignant, The Wine of Solitude is the most autobiographical of all of the novels from the celebrated author of Suite Franaise.

Beginning in a fictionalized Kiev, The Wine of Solitude follows the Karol family through the Great War and the Russian Revolution, as the young Hlne grows from a dreamy, unhappy child into a strongwilled young woman. From the hot Kiev summers to the cruel winters of St Petersburg and eventually to springtime in Paris, the would-be writer Hlne blossoms, despite her mothers neglect, into a clear-eyed observer of the life around her. Here is a powerful tale of disillusionment the story of an upbringing that produces a young woman as hard as a diamond, prepared to wreak a shattering revenge on her mother.
