The life of Emile Zola
This Oscar-winning minor classic portrays Zolas early years, his financial struggles, his friendship with Cézanne and his clashes with authority over political criticism.
Its centrepiece is Zolas involvement in the Dreyfus affair, which forced him into exile to England for about a year.
