Description

Born to drunken parents in the slums of Paris, Nana lives in squalor until she is discovered at the Th tre des Vari t s.

She soon rises from the streets to set the city alight as the most famous high-class prostitute of her day.

Rich men, Comtes and Marquises fall at her feet, great ladies try to emulate her appearance, lovers even kill themselves for her.

Nana's hedonistic appetite for luxury and decadent pleasures knows no bounds - until, eventually, it consumes her.

Nana provoked outrage on its publication in 1880, with its heroine damned as 'the most crude and bestial sort of whore', yes the language of the novel makes Nana almost a mythical figure: a destructive force preying on a corrupt society.
