Nana una cortesana que domina a todos, ella en realidad es la victima de una sociedad corrompida. Nana es de todos, pero no pertenece a ninguno y su desnudez que exhibe sin inhibiciones en el teatro de variedades, hace que se disimule su voz ronca y desagradable y sus ningunas cualidades artisticas.

Nana, a courtesan who dominates everybody, is in fact a victim of a corrupt society. Nana gives herself to all, but she doesn't belong to anyone and her nakedness, that she exhibits without any inhibitions in the theater, helps to disguise her hoarse and disagreeable voice and her lack of art.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 2/18/2014

    " This is beautifully written, but two thirds of the way through I cannot read any further. This beautiful young woman giving herself to this man who mistreats her is too awful to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/18/2014

    " The heroine is sympathetic despite her vocational toxicity. Nana's epically slutty method of avenging her class and sex is kinda cathartic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shauna | 2/12/2014

    " Classic yes, but far to depressing and dull for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice Handley | 1/10/2014

    " Zola kind of really didn't like the ladies, did he? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/10/2014

    " Trying to get through this one...is a bit tedious...not as exciting as some of Zola's others... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 1/1/2014

    " quite the warning to anyone thinking of taking up the life of a courtesan. the last page is a winner. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erin | 12/23/2013

    " I had a bad translation frm 1931. It might not be such a bad read with an updated one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily L. | 10/23/2013

    " This is one of my very favorite books of all time... Which is saying a lot. I just fell in love with this story, the city, the characters I love a good romantic tragedy though, to be sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen Wagner | 12/31/2012

    " It took me a little while to get into this book, particularly because I originally found the writing style of Zola and/or his translator a bit tedious, but overall I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 11/29/2012

    " First read this 40 years ago in French and English for a university French course. Made even more of an impact now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 8/25/2012

    " wow! slow start but once I got going this was wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anjuli | 4/21/2012

    " A lovely introduction to prostitutes and courtesans in late 19th century France. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tarrastarr | 8/25/2011

    " fantastic portrait as always. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 8/17/2011

    " While difficult to get into, I ended up thoroughly enjoying this book. The extravagance and debauchery of the period make it like reading a tabloid from that era. It was good enough that I will read Zola! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 5/16/2011

    " May have to put this on my reread list. It's been many years since I read it. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nana' | 2/27/2011

    " what can I say? a whore named nana brings men to their knees then dies of syphilis. awesome!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stargazer | 1/12/2011

    " Really good book, I read cos my aunt was a character in it, but it was too realistic and therefore depressing. A French librarian told me, 'You read Shakespeare here at school, we read Zola.' I can see why. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 12/19/2010

    " Can't really remember what I thought of this book at the time I read it - over 40 years ago and still naive 20-something idealist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily L. | 12/10/2010

    " This is one of my very favorite books of all time... Which is saying a lot. I just fell in love with this story, the city, the characters I love a good romantic tragedy though, to be sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 La Chipie | 11/25/2010

    " Où la fille de Gervaise tente de survivre et de gravir les échelons grâce à sa beauté... pour le payer bien cher au final. C'est du Zola, donc déprimant, réaliste et laissant peu de place à l'espoir et à la rédemption. Mais c'est toujours aussi bien écrit, aussi prenant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riana Elizabeth Spencer | 11/16/2010

    " Sexual theatre exploits during the period of the Parisian World's Fair. ;-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 9/5/2010

    " Mein Favorit aus meiner Kindheit!!! TOP! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Traveller | 8/22/2010

    " I hated this novel for it's rank offensively aggressive mysogynism and it's sanctimonious preaching.
