    Thanks for the heads-up on this, Lisa! It sounds much more comprehensive than With Zola in England, which is basically a charming memoir. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10670

    It’s not even January and yet seeing this news means my committment to read what I already have for the first six months, is wavering.

    The road to hell, as they say, is paved with good intentions…

    Thanks for letting us know Lisa, it looks like an interesting book. I have read the Vizetelly memoir that Dagny linked to.


  5. Lisa Hill says:

    Dear old Vizetelly, according to the Guardian article he was the one who helped Zola when he fled. Can we imagine a publisher doing that for, say, a Chinese or Iranian émigré?
