"A peerless series" - Tribune

"The Oxford Worlds Classics... proves all over again that classics only become classics because they are superb reading." - Louis de Bernières

"[for OWC Zola's Rougon-Maquart Cycle] OUP editions are the ones to read, not only because the translations are infinitely better than anything else I found, but also because the Introductions will add to your enjoyment of the novels and the series." - Lisa Hill, ANZLit Lovers
