The Ladies' Paradise by Émile Zola (1840 - 1902). Translated by Ernest Alfred Vizetelly (1853 - 1922)..
Quote:
Zola's original French publication, Au Bonheur des Dames ("The Ladies' Delight"), published 1882, is the eleventh novel in his Rougon-Macquart series. This English translation, attributed to Ernest Alfred Vizetelly, was published in 1886. It's a glitzy, fast paced drama depicting life at the world's first department store, revealing its many innovative marketing concepts, fashion, glamour, lust, greed, courage, deception, human foibles, and the vision and financial risk-taking that led to a world transformation in shopping -- one that set all the little shop keepers on their heads. All this is contrasted by Denise, the young heroine, as she struggles through enormous hardships and temptations with quiet courage and gentle steadfastness. As she passes through fire and emerges from it unscathed, we get Zola's masterfully beautiful depiction of feminine resistance to evil.

In 2012 the BBC used the novel as the basis for an eight-part television series set in northern England titled The Paradise. A second season followed in 2013. The novel was also was adapted into a play, The Ladies' Delight, for BBC Radio 4, premiering in September 2010.

No, please read the First Post, which announces Phil Chenevert is MC'ing this project and I am the DPL. Thanks for the offers, though.

It's already set up, so I'll just take my name off and hand it over to Phil.

I think you will need to check in with the cover admins, though. A soloist is expected to act as their own BC; we've occasionally had people offer to BC for a soloist who really isn't able to do it, but this is the exception, and I wouldn't think this "stand-in BC" would be able to pre-claim the cover.

I know nothing about any such rule, and I've done it before. This is totally my project, and I invited Kristin to read it as I don't think my voice fits, hers does, and I don't think it would make a good group project. I'm no way a stand in BC, and I've read somewhere in a wiki or on the forum archives that this is one way projects can be organized. Why not? Different people, different skills, different time commitments. Some readers don't like to BC. Some BC's don't like to read. Most people don't design covers. I like it all. What can the problem be? If it fits the LV mission to get PD books recorded, and I'm excited to get this one done, how can there be a problem?

If you're the BC for this one, you'll get cover pre-claim rights.

Just go over to the cover thread and claim.

Sorry I'm late to this party; been away and busy. Yes, I am the MC, Michele is the BC and Kristin is the soloist. Sarah thanks for setting it up; I told Michele I wanted to MC this Zola story and to just put my name in the title to hold it till I got back this evening. Sorry for the confusion.
Never done one like this before but I see no problem with a soloist having someone else be the Book Coordinator. Perhaps there is of course and if someone knows of a difficulty please let me know.

Phil, I missed the part about putting your name in the title. I just put it in the First Post. Sorry for the confusion, Sarah. Thanks for setting up the MW and for changing the reader from msfry to Kristinjg. Weirdly, I was in the MW making the change myself when it suddenly appeared.

Okay, now I'm ready to start filling it in.

Hi, Kristin. MW is all filled in. Some of the chapters ran to 13000 words, so I tried dividing everything up more or less into 20-30 minute segments so you wouldn't have to read too fast, or too long at a stretch. I tried to locate the break points at scene changes and/or cliff hangers, but if you find more sensible ones as you read, feel free to adjust them, (so long as they don't mess with the section numbers).

I'm looking forward to the first installment! Any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thanks, Phil. I've made arrangement with Kristin to let this project unfold at her pace. It's her first solo and she's working it in around many other commitments. However much time it may take, I'm anticipating a very enjoyable listen. :)

Sorry for disappearing, we suddenly started moving a few weeks before planned, so everything is a bit all over the place, but I will have the first chapter up by the end of next weekend (ten days) at the last.
