The Jolly Parisiennes and Other Novelettes by Émile Zola (1840 - 1902)
Translated by George D. Cox (? - 1896)
.
“The Jolly Parisiennes” by Émile Zola is a very clever, brilliant and interesting romance of a “grande passion” with an undercurrent of political intrigue. The plot is ingenious both in conception and execution, while the tone of the novel is exceedingly bright and vivacious. A peculiar phase of Parisian society is most agreeably dealt with. The heroines, Louise Neigeon and Berthe Gaucheraud, are very jolly ladies indeed, but they never forget that they are ladies, even in their merriest and most eccentric moods. They are handsome, graceful and captivating, tempering their seeming recklessness with the refinement of education and luxury. No wonder the young provincial hero, George de Vaugelade, was bewildered in their society and utterly lost his head. The other characters are a Countess with well-attended receptions; Felix Budin, a rather blasé young Parisian; Gaucheraud, a fat politician; and Monsieur Neigeon, a shadowy Deputy. “The Jolly Parisiennes” is a novel that everybody will read and relish. Several other novelettes by Zola are also in the volume. They are int eh genuine Zola style, strong and interesting every one of them. ( the Publisher)

Hi Carolin. I was just looking at the catalog to see which Zola works had been done, so that i could pick a new Zola project! How timely! :D

I think it would be better if a male voice read the first story, but i would like to read Mme. Flavie in its entirety: Sections 6-10, please.

I have no PL experience, but i would like to give it a try. Could i offer to DPL this project...?

Thanks,
~Lis.

Thank you lis, awesome!

I see my comment above was a bit unclear. Proof listening is easy when you havs experience in recording because you know what trouble to look for and how to fix things, so you can easily help other readers. You always need someone else to proof listen your own recordings though. I can do that for you unless someone else wishes to do it :)

Im a bit stressed these days but just keep recording and uploading, ill catch up with you :) thank you!
