Publisher Comments:

In contrast with the epic scope of the Rougon-Macquart novels, Zolas short stories are concerned with the everyday aspects of human existence and the interests of ordinary people. From the cruel irony of "Captain Burle" to the Rabelaisian exuberance of "Coqueville on the Spree," these stories display the broad range of Zolas imagination, using a variety of tones, from the quietly cynical to the compassionate. The settings of the stories also range widely, from the aristocratic drawing rooms to poverty-stricken garrets, from the cemeteries of Paris to the countryside of Zolas youth. In these 16 stories, Zolas racy tone is faithfully rendered by acclaimed translator Douglas Parmée.

About the Author

Émile Zola (1840–1902) is the foremost representative of the Naturalist school, and is best remembered for Thérèse Raquin and his 20-novel cycle, the Rougon-Macquarts. Douglas Parmée was a lecturer in modern languages and an acclaimed translator whose other Zola translations include The Earth and Nana.
