It has been a long time since I’ve if I’ve ever so excessively cringed, tensed up, sighed from such unadulterated frustration, and chewed the insides of my mouth from stress while reading about imaginary people.

At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, I honestly believe this may be the most depressing novel I have ever read. Also, at one point, bemoaning her bad luck, Gervaise muses about a play she saw where the wife poisoned her much hated husband for the sake of her lover. Sure, you have read all types, and there isn’t a book of note that isn’t in your library or kindle.

L’Assommoir (The Dram Shop) by Émile Zola

Refresh and try again. Her first husband Lantier does not come home that night. So far, this novel hasn’t failed to disappoint.

They never even knew what she did die of. Men are responsible for taking her life and flushing it down the sad Parisian cludgie, along with a family of unfeeling guttersnipe witches who make you want to pound their faces in with soldering irons.

I love this discussion of salad at a dinner party in Gervaise and Coupeau’s tiny, zolx apartment. At the center of the story stands Gervaise, who starts her own laundry and for a time makes a success of it. Emilee couple get along well, are steadily employed and manage to save enough for Gervaise to start her own business.
