"Nana" is a realistic novel written in spontaneous style. As the story begins we meet the protagonist Nana, a prostitute. The novel focusses on the behaviour of the wealthy and elite of Paris at a time when France was world renowned as the centre of adult entertainment. Zola has successfully captured the corruption of the high-class French in the mid-1800s. Engrossing!
