The Ladies' Paradise

TV tie-in edition

Émile Zola
Brian Nelson

Oxford World's Classics

  • A great story of rivalry and ambition, in which the social world of the department store is a microcosm of society at large.
  • The eleventh book in Zola's famous Rougon-Macquart cycle, it has a lively cast of characters and is one of the greatest novels of the modern city.
  • The novel captures the spirit of the great rise in consumerism at the end of the nineteenth century, and the development of marketing techniques now used by retailers the world over.

New to this Edition:

  • This sparkling translation of Zola's novel centred on the life of a great department store has been adapted for television as The Paradise.
