I'm reading Nana by Emile Zola at the moment, it's a great story. For some reason I love vintage books, we are about to step into 2009, and this is a edition printed in the 1930's, the story is originally published in 1880. If you think about it that way, the past is really not so far into the past, and we are not completely trapped in our own life times. I like the sense of humor in all the illustrations, in which the heroine Nana who posses such dazzling sexual power is always depicted as half naked.
