Description
The superficially angelic Thérèse offers herself to the besotted clerk Julien, but there is a very high—and rather macabre—price for her favors, in the 1876 title story of this collection by the author of Nana and The Paradise. In "Nantas," a pregnant maid coaxes her neighbor into a shotgun wedding, while in "Fasting," the spiritual needs of churchgoing women are unanswered by a priest, whose love of fine food conflicts with his fire-and-brimstone sermons. Both A.N. Wilson's foreword and Andrew Brown's introduction examine the bold artistry and undeniable shock value of Émile Zola's stories.
