This was my first Zola, it won’t be the last. Just when she swears off men believing they are all rotten, one comes her meyhanf. That doesn’t sit right with me. I loved Germinal for its honest honest sadness that the book brings to you on a bunch of paper.

L’Assommoir (The Dram Shop) by Émile Zola

Don’t actually remember when I read this, it was sometime just after college. And through the singing we are given a glimpse into the soul of each of these poor men and women, quite a moving experience for us as readers.

She also leaves behind a devil named Nana, whose little adventures will teach us that there are non-alcoholic ways to be unhappy, in the ninth book of the Rougon-Macquart series. Two disasters – a roofing accident and the arrival of ex-boyfriend Lantier on the scene – plunge Gervaise and Coupeau into increasing emle, debt and poverty.

L’Assommoir (The Dram Shop)

This is the novel that introduces us to Nana, the child of Gervaise and Coupeau, who will become the prostitute with her own novel. This was the case for me. As soon as she had any bread herself Gervaise would throw him some crusts. This is not a book you want to look back and go: Gevaise is lost amid poverty and vice, questing to lead a moral life and provide for her children. At every moment she could have pulled herself away from all this, but she didn’t, or maybe she couldn’t in some way.

When you find yourself yawning through pages and pages of narration, skimming and sighing and rolling your eyes, it’s time to cut the cord. So far, this novel hasn’t failed to disappoint. Zola concentrates on perennially relevant themes in all his novels, themes which will still be worth reading about in one hundred years time.

Her first husband Lantier does not come home that night. But the alcoholism in the novel serves merely as an enabler and multiplier for the miseries of the seven sins. And an increasing abuse of, and dependence on, alcohol. I would like to recommend it to my family and friends, but I fear they would consider it depressing and tragic and it is, but it is much more.
