For anybody interested in more Zola (and who isn't?), just want to put in a belated plug for the five bitchin' posts Tom of Wuthering Expectations ran as part of Thérèse Raquin Week all the way back in 2010.  Great stuff!


Doom, with a new table of discontents, will continue in October.  It's never too late to join in on the "fun."

  1. Just speaking from my own limited reading, L'Assommoir, Nana, and Germinal were also pretty Doom-laden, especially the last two. The Belly of Paris and The Kill, much less so.

    1. Thanks for this edifying breakdown. I already own Germinal, so your comment may be just the incentive I need to get to it before the end of the year its length be damned. Had been wanting to read that foodie novel next, though, to savor that unhinged symphony of cheeses. Decisions, decisions!
