Review:

Frederick Brown, in his modest and superlative way, has written the great novelists' biography as Zola himself might have aspired to write one of his own finest novels. His book is a meticulous, expertly crafted entity that gathers strength from strength as it goes along toward its dramatic denouement, its length adding to the cumulative passion and moral importance of the whole work. This is a momentous achievement. Enthralling!

Book Description:

In this detailed biography, Frederick Brown discloses Zola's development as an author, and the moral consciousness that led him to invest himself in one social and political problem after another. Brown also shows Zola's human side--his failings, his superstitions, his private joys and dilemmas.
