Au Bonheur des Dames

Ligaran

Extrait : "Denise, cédant à la séduction, était venue jusqu'à la porte, sans se soucier du rejaillissement des gouttes, qui la trempait. A cette heure de nuit, avec son éclat de fournaise, le Bonheur des Dames achevait de la prendre tout entière. Dans la grande ville, noire et muette sous la pluie, dans ce Paris qu'elle ignorait, il flambait comme un phare, il semblait à lui seul la lumière et la vie de la cité."

Now the basis for the major BBC tv adaptation The Paradise, this is a lavish drama and a timeless commentary on consumerism. The Penguin Classics edition of Émile Zola's The Ladies' Delight is based on an acclaimed, vivid and modern translation by Robin Buss, who has also introduced the novel.

The Ladies' Delight is the glittering Paris department store run by Octave Mouret. He has used charm and drive to become director of this mighty emporium, unscrupulously exploiting his young female staff and seducing his lady customers with luxurious displays of shimmering silks, satins, velvets and lace. Then Denise Baudu, a naïve provincial girl, becomes an assistant at the store - and Mouret discovers that he in turn can also be enchanted. With its greedy customers, gossiping staff and vibrant sense of theatre, The Ladies' Delight (Au Bonheur des Dames in the original French) is one of the most richly exciting novels in Zola's Les Rougon-Macquart cycle.

This edition also contains a bibliography, introduction, chronology and explanatory notes.

Emile Zola (1840-1902) was the leading figure in the French school of naturalistic fiction. His principal work, Les Rougon-Macquart, is a panorama of mid-19th century French life, in a cycle of 20 novels which Zola wrote over a period of 22 years, including Au Bonheur des Dames (1883), The Beast Within (1890), Nana (1880), and The Drinking Den (1877).
