Émile Zola

The Fortune of the Rougons

The novel is partly an origin story, with a huge cast of characters swarming around – many of whom become the central figures of later novels in the series – and partly an account of the December 1851 coup d'état that created the French Second Empire under Napoleon III as experienced in a large provincial town in southern France.
