Author Biography - Emile Zola

Emile Zola (1840-1902) is one of the best-known 19th-century novelists, famous for his espousal of Naturalism. Apart from Therese Raquin, his many novels include Nana (1880), about a slum-girl turned courtesan to the bourgeoisie, and Germinal (1885), a grim portrait of a mining community. Often accused of pornography, his aim was to 'tell it like it is', and his reputation is much higher now than in his lifetime. Nicholas Wright's most recent theatre work is the phenomenally successful adaptation of His Dark Materials. His Vincent in Brixton won rave reviews and the Olivier Award for Best Play. Earlier work includes the West End hits, Cressida, with Michael Gambon, and Mrs Klein. Other adaptations include Naked with Juliette Binoche, Lulu with Anna Friel and Three Sisters at the National. All are published by NHB.
