Prints in 3-5 business days
Zola Gidi came to the UK from South Africa with her boyfriend in 1991. By 1997, she was settled in Swansea, Wales, with a job, a flat and the medical care she needed. Suddenly the Home Office... More > threatened her with deportation. Zola's many friends in Swansea rallied round. The local paper, the South Wales Evening Post campaigned for her right to stay. Charities including Swansea Bay Asylum Seekers Support Group, the Immigration Advisory Service, and Asylum Justice, made sure she got the expert legal advice she needed to fight the Home Office decision. Zola was finally allowed to stay, though only after difficult years of uncertainty, insecurity and fear. In this book she tells her story in her own words. She tells how eventually she was able to take British Citizenship, at a moving ceremony, and then was able to travel to see her family in South Africa, for the first time in many years, no longer fearful that she would not be let back into the UK. Zola's story: sometimes, kindness and friendship do win!< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
The Downfall by Emile Zola is a very gripping story which keeps the readers involved very deeply till the conclusion. Corporal Jean Macquart, a sturdy French peasant, led the squad of infantry of... More > which Private Maurice Levasseur was a member. The squad was a part of the 106th Regiment of the Seventh Corps of the French Army. A state of war existed between France and Prussia; the year was 1870. At the outset, it had been felt in France that the war would be nothing more than a quick promenade to Berlin, but shortages of equipment, the rivalry of the French commanders, and quick Prussian success made the outcome of the conflict doubtful.< Less

Emile Zola Classics: Fruitfulness By Emile Zola
eBook (ePub): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
"Fruitfulness" by Emile Zola is the first of a series of four works in which M. Zola proposes to embody what he considers to be the four cardinal principles of human... More > life. "Fruitfulness," says M. Zola, "creates the home. Thence springs the city. From the idea of citizenship comes that of the fatherland; and love of country, in minds fed by science, leads to the conception of a wider and vaster fatherland, comprising all the peoples of the earth. Of these three stages in the progress of mankind, the fourth still remains to be attained. I have thought then of writing, as it were, a poem in four volumes, in fou chants, in which I shall endeavor to sum up the philosophy of all my work.< Less
Emile Zola Classics: Nana By Emile Zola
eBook (ePub): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
Nana tells the story of Nana Coupeau's rise from streetwalker to high-class cocotte during the last three years of the French Second Empire. Nana first appears in the end of L'Assommoir (1877),... More > another of Zola's Rougon-Macquart series, in which she is portrayed as the daughter of an abusive drunk; in the end, she is living in the streets and just beginning a life of prostitution. The new novel opens with a night at the Théâtre des Variétés. The Exposition Universelle (1867) has just opened its doors. Nana is 15 years old (the number 18 mentioned in the book is not more than a fig leaf). Zola had taken care to make this clear to his readers by publishing an elaborate family tree of the Rougon-Macquarts in the newspaper Le Bien Public in 1878 when he started writing Nana. Zola describes in detail the performance of La blonde Vénus, a fictional operetta modelled after Offenbach's La belle Hélène, in which Nana is cast as the lead.< Less
