bookshelves: fiction
Recommended for: People who like literature, who like socially-relevant stories and delight in a good, long book.
Read in January, 1995

Part of the 20-vol Rougon-Marquart cycle. All the books are good and very differerent, but Nana stands out as being as relevant now as then, as in any time in fact. The girl with the pretty face and no moral problem about capitalising it becomes the most-highly paid courtesan in Paris but looks don't last.
