The Fortune of the Rougons
by Emile Zola
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2010
The first of a series of more than twenty novels, The Fortune of the Rougons presents the passions and conflicts of two families -- one wealthy and aiming at the aristocracy, the other working-class and in desperate poverty -- in a French village in the years leading up to Napoleon III's coup against the weak French republic and the triumph of his Second Empire.
