It does not merely depict the world of finance; it gives us glimpses of the charitable rich, the decayed noblesse striving to keep up appearances, the thrifty and the struggling poor. Further, it appears to me to be a less contemplative work than many of M. The plot, too, is a sound one, and from beginning to end the interest never flags. If they desire to have verbatim translations of M. And now, by way of conclusion, I have a request to make.

Zola or myself than to learn that this book had in some degree contributed to alleviate so much undeserved misery and hardship. ORDER :. In the UK: Amazon. In Canada: Amazon. Pages: Book Type: 5. We recommend :. The Mysteries of Marseille.
