Émile Zola

AtWork

 

Today, April 2, is the anniversary of the birth of one of my favorite authors, Émile Zola (1840-1902).

At this point I have read nineteen of the twenty Rougon-Macquart novels plus several of his other works. (His excellency Eugene Rougon is the one I haven’t yet read.) L’Assommoir with its character of Gervaise is my favorite. I’ve read it in three or four different translations.
