Description

A Moment of Truth:The Life of Zola

by Hugh McLeave

A Moment of Truth is a biographical novel of the life and times of Zola. It is also a cultural fresco of late nineteenth-century France.

A Moment of Truth tells of Zola’s early struggle against poverty and incomprehension; his blood-brother friendship with Paul Cézanne; his backing of the scorned Impressionists; his monumental creation of twenty Rougon-Macquart novels depicting and dissecting the French Second Empire in raw and often lurid prose.

Finally, this book details Zola’s courageous combat against the whole French establishment to win justice for an obscure Jewish captain, Alfred Dreyfus. Zola’s unremitting battle for justice in L’Affaire Dreyfus caused his own death in 1902.

Every page of A Moment of Truthcan be traced to Zola’s letters, dossiers and other documents and authorities. A Moment of Truth provides new material on Zola’s early life and the mystery of his premature death.

About The Author:

Born and brought up in the west of Scotland, Hugh McLeave studied history and modern languages at Glasgow University. He spent five war years as an artillery officer in the Far East. Afterwards, he went into London journalism, working for twenty years in Fleet Street. He was first a crime correspondent at Scotland Yard and later covered the great world events in science and medicine for the News Chronicle and Daily Mail. Among those he once covered a too close-up look at an H-bomb test and interviewed such disparate individuals as J. Robert Oppenheimer, father of the A-bomb; and Klaus Fuchs, who revealed its secrets to the Russians.

Hugh McLeave’s twenty-three books include A Question of Negligence and No Face in the Mirror, written around his psychiatric sleuth, Gregor Maclean. His non-fiction list comprises The Last Pharaoh, the life of King Farouk, also a film; a biographical history of the Foreign Legion, The Damned Die Hard; and A Man and His Mountain, the life of the painter, Paul Cézanne; as well as a history of the most spectacular art thefts, Rogues in the Gallery. He has lived in France for the past thirty-one years, fifteen of them in Aix-en-Provence where Emile Zola and Paul Cézanne grew up together.
