on my bookshelf: L'Assommoir

i'm really kicking myself that it isn't until now that i've just started to read Émile Zola.
i am starting with the first one that was available on the library shelf, which was L'Assommoir,
themes of alcoholism & povery in a working-class district of Paris.


  1. hmm... sounds like my kind of book. make sure to let us know what you thought of it. i always need a new book to read. love the degas paintings and the photo, the mans mustache is great!

  2. Thanks for the tip, I shall add it to my goodreads!

  3. I have recently had the exact same revelation - I was actually looking for the one you mentioned but they didn't have it so I am reading Thérèse Raquin. So far it's pretty amazing.

    P.S. I love your blog and knits! I have read for a long time but this is my first comment.

  4. ce livre est tres long...bonne chance ;)


don't be shy, please leave me a comment!
