Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The seventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, L\'Assommoir (1877) is the story of a woman\'s struggle for happiness in working-class Paris. At the center of the story stands Gervaise, who starts her own laundry and for a time makes a success of it. But her husband soon squanders her earnings in the Assommoir, a local drinking spot, and gradually the pair sink into poverty and squalor.. L\'Assommoir was a contemporary bestseller, outraged conservative critics, and launched a passionate debate about the legitimate scope of modern literature. This new translation captures not only the brutality but the pathos of its characters\' lives.
