Publisher's Summary

Émile Zola's The Kill is one part of the French author's 20-volume series about the fictitious Rougon-Macquart family during the Second French Empire, and it is rich with symbolism. Paris is awakening to unprecedented expansion, the future intoxicating, and in keeping with its penchant for excess, the aristocracy is caught up in the mad dash to devour as much of it as it can.

Whoever?!

Edit this properly. She coughs and clears her throat several times and I’m only on the first chapter! This is not on Cate Barrett, somebody needs to listen and edit this properly. If you need someone to be paid to listen to and edit things, let me know!

Mediocre Zola

This is not one of the great Naturalist’s best. It’s also a poor translation, with less than idiomatic English.
