This week is the start of Paris in July hosted by Tamara at Thyme for Tea. For this weeks book beginning and page 56, I choose one book I have been reading for this challenge. It is Michael Rosen's The Disappearance of Èmile Zola.
Book beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader
"On the evening of Monday, 18 July 1898, Èmile Zola disappeared."
The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
"As Zola wrote in his notes for the novel, his intention was to write Three Gospels ('Èvangiles') - Fruitfulness, Work and Justice. This would match the trilogy he had finished eleven months earlier, Les Trois Villes (Three Cities) - Lourdes, Rome and Paris."
A review of this biography will follow.
