Product Details


"Goldhammer’s translation of Zola’s satiric, transgressive tale–about, among other things, Paris, modernity, incest, and the order of the new–is a work of pure delight. And his introduction to the novel is simply brilliant." –Jean Strouse, author of Morgan: An American Financier
"Zola’s ferocious, brutally direct novel of modern desire is made fully present in Arthur Goldhammer’s new translation. It is Paris then, it is our city now. " -Jay Cantor, author of Great Neck and Krazy Kat
"Elegantly translated, with his customary urbane sparkle and precision, by Arthur Goldhammer, this new edition of The Kill is a pleasure to be savored." -Ella Taylor, film critic, LA Weekly
