About the Author
Émile Zola (2 April 1840 - 29 September 1902) was a French novelist, playwright, journalist, the best-known practitioner of the literary school of naturalism, and an important contributor to the development of theatrical naturalism. He was a major figure in the political liberalization of France and in the exoneration of the falsely accused and convicted army officer Alfred Dreyfus.Zola was nominated for the first and second Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901 and 1902. He wrote every day for around 30 years and is considered to be a significant influence on writers that are credited with the creation of new journalism: Wolfe, Capote, Thompson, Mailer, Didion, Talese and others.
