L'assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )
651 editions published between 1873 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 4,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The seventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, L'Assommoir (1877), is the story of a woman's struggle for happiness in working-class Paris. It was a contemporary bestseller, outraged conservative critics, and launched a passionate debate about the legitimate scope of modern literature. At the centre of the novel stands Gervaise, who starts her own laundry and for a time makes a success of it. But her husband Coupeau squanders her earnings in the Assommoir, the local drinking shop, and gradually the pair sink into poverty and squalor. L'Assommoir is the most finely crafted of Zola's novels, and this new translation captures not only the brutality but also the pathos of its characters' lives. This book is a powerful indictment of nineteenth-century social conditions, and the Introduction examines its relation to politics and art as well as its explosive effect on the literary scene
The debacle, 1870-71 by Émile Zola( Book )
454 editions published between 1000 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 3,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"La Debacle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola ever wrote. Zola skillfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France."--Jacket
The kill = (La curée) by Émile Zola( Book )
408 editions published between 1850 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 3,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The incestuous affair of Renee Saccard and her stepson, Maxime, is set against the frenzied speculation of Renee's financier husband, Aristide, in a Paris swiftly becoming a modern metropolis and "the capital of the nineteenth century." In the end, setting and story merge in actions that leave a woman's spirit and a city's soul ravaged beyond repair
The ladies' paradise by Émile Zola( Book )
548 editions published between 1880 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 3,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Through charm, drive, and diligent effort Octave Mouret has become the director of one of the finest new department stores in Paris, Au Bonheur des Dames. Supremely aware of the power of his position, Mouret seeks to exploit the desire that his luxuriantly displayed merchandise arouses in the ladies who shop, and the aspirations of the young female assistants he employs. Charting the beginnings of the capitalist economy and bourgeois society, Zola captures in lavish detail the greedy customers and gossiping staff, and the obsession with image, fashion, and gratification that was a phenomenon of nineteenth-century French consumer society. Of all Zola's novels, this may be the one with the most relevance for our own time"--The publisher
La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )
477 editions published between 1840 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 2,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A superb new translation of one of the most intense and explicit works of the nineteenth-century French master Emile Zola considered The Beast Within-also known as La Bete Humaine-to be his "most finely worked" novel. This new translation finally captures his fast- paced yet deliberately dispassionate style. Set at the end of the Second Empire, when French society seemed to be hurtling into the future like the new railways and locomotives it was building, The Beast Within is at once a tale of murder, passion, and possession and a compassionate study of individuals derailed by the burden of inherited evil. In it, Zola expresses the hope that human nature evolves through education but warns that the beast within continues to lurk beneath the veneer of technological progress. (Barnes & Noble)

The fortune of the Rougons by Émile Zola( Book )
412 editions published between 1871 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fictional town of Plassans (loosely based on the real city of Aix-en-Provence, where Zola grew up) is established as the setting for the novel and described in intimate detail, and then we are introduced to the eccentric heroine Adelaide Fouque, later known as "Tante Dide", who becomes the common ancestor for both the Rougon and Macquart families. Her legitimate son from her short marriage to her late husband, a labourer named Rougon who worked on Dide's land, is forced to grow up alongside two illegitimate children--a boy and a girl--from Dide's later romance with the smuggler, poacher and alcoholic Macquart, while the aging Dide slides further and further into a state of mental illness and borderline senile dementia. From this premise, the next nineteen novels all get their central protagonists and to a certain extent their themes

Une édition de référence de Le Rêve d'Émile Zola, spécialement conçue pour la lecture sur les supports numériques. « Effrayée, ayant peur de l'eau, Angélique suivit Chevrotte, pour gagner la planche qui servait de pont. Mais Félicien avait coupé au travers des broussailles. Si timide jusqu'alors, il était devenu plus rouge qu'elle, à voir ses pieds blancs ; et une flamme le poussait, il aurait voulu crier la passion qui l'avait possédé tout entier, dès le premier jour, dans le débordement de sa jeunesse. Puis, quand elle le frôla, il ne put que balbutier l'aveu, dont ses lèvres brûlaient. »
