Product description

Review

'Nothing gets a crowd going like sex and shopping. Emile Zola was one of the first to describe this new consumerist link in his novel The Ladies' Paradise.' --The Times

'Perhaps the most famous novel about shopping is Emile Zola's The Ladies' Paradise - For Zola, the department store was a metaphor for the triumph of capitalism - but he also saw it as the place where women were duped and enslaved into the new habit of consumerism.' --The Guardian

'It's an excellent edition!' --P.D. Smith

'It's sex and shopping for 400 pulsating pages in Zola's gripping 1883 novel (recently adapted for television by the BBC). From the opening image of the great Parisian dress emporium, all gilded cherubs and lavish window displays of satins and silks, you are hooked.' --The Daily Mail

'It's an excellent edition!' --P.D. Smith

About the Author

Emile Zola (1804-1902) is the foremost representative of the Naturalist school, and is best remembered for Therese Raquin and his twenty-novel cycle, The Rougon Macquarts.
