Description

Money centres on the figure of Aristide Rougon, known as Saccard, and his unscrupulous money-making schemes. His story intertwines the worlds of politics, finance, and the press, and resonates disturbingly with our own times. This is the first new translation for more than a hundred years, and the first unabridged translation in English.

  • The first new translation of this powerful novel since 1894, and the first unabridged translation in English.
  • The eighteenth novel in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series, Money has many contemporary resonances, with a financier for its central character and a plot that involves a banking crisis, illegal practices, manipulation of the press, politics, sex, and power.
  • Lively new translation by Valerie Minogue, President of the Émile Zola Society in London.
  • Includes a full contextualizing introduction and helpful historical notes.

"I was justifiably excited by this new translation of Emile Zola's novel Money ... Overall the text is fluid and reads as if it were not a translation at all." - ANZ Lit Lovers
