    After years of poverty, Émile Zola was employed in Louis Hachette’s bookstore where he worked in a variety of jobs from 1862. Two years later, he published his first novel, Les contes à Ninon.

    During this period, he wrote for many newspapers including L’Illustration and Le Figaro. He puts forward his anti-clerical and anti-imperial positions in La tribune or La cloche.

    He then met Alphonse Daudet, Gustave Flaubert, Guy de Maupassant and Paul Alexis.

    In 1877, L’Assommoir was published, followed by his work “Les Rougon-Macquart” composed of 20 novels published between 1870 and 1893. We find Germinal, Pot-Bouille, La curée or Nana.
