Synopses & Reviews

Paris clamored to see her — Nana, Nana they cried, to bring onstage the new star of The Blonde Venus. Then she appeared — and as for stage abilities, Nana seemed to have none . . . yet the sensuous vitality of her every movement captivated everyone.

Emile Zola's depiction of Nana's struggles to rise above her squalid upbringing remains a triumph of novelistic naturalism.
