A priest in the house by Émile Zola( Book )

8 editions published between 1927 and 1928 in French and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The arrival of Abbé Faujas in the provincial town of Plassans has profound consequences for the community, and for the family of François Mouret in particular. Faujas and his mother come to lodge with François, his wife Marthe, and their three children, and Marthe quickly falls under the influence of the priest. Ambitious and unscrupulous, Faujas gradually infiltrates into all quarters of the town, intent on political as well as religious conquest. Intrigue, slander, and insinuation tear the townsfolk apart, creating suspicion and distrust, and driving the Mourets to ever more extreme actions ... In one of the most psychological of his novels, Zola links small-town politics to the greater political and national dramas of the Second Empire"--Page 4 of cover
La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

5 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 52 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 ladies' paradise by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 49 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

Les Mystères de Marseille ... by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comme Balzac et d'autres écrivains qu'il admirait, le jeune Zola, qui a 27 ans en 1867, s'essaie à la littérature alimentaire qu'est à ce moment le feuilleton. Pastichant à sa manière Eugène Sue et Paul Féval, il fait ses gammes avec ce gros roman rempli de rebondissements et de surprises, dans lequel apparaissent déjà ses préoccupations sociales. Intéressant pour le lecteur moyen et aussi pour celui qui connaît l'oeuvre ultérieure
L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published between 1927 and 1928 in French and held by 45 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

His masterpiece by Émile Zola( Book )

7 editions published between 1928 and 1997 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His masterpiece is the tragic story of Claude Lantier, an ambitious and talented young artist who has come from the provinces to conquer Paris but is conquered instead by the flaws of his own genius. Set in the 1860s and 1870s, it is the most autobiographical of the twenty novels in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series. It provides a unique insight into Zola's career as a writer and his relationship with Cezanne, a friend since their schooldays in Aix-en-Provence. It also presents a well-documented account of the turbulent Bohemian world in which the Impressionists came to prominence despite the conservatism of the Academy and the ridicule of the general public
