By Émile Zola

Zola conteur et nouvelliste ? l. a. réponse a de quoi surprendre: on forget about le plus souvent que l'auteur des Rougon-Macquart, tout au lengthy de sa carrière, s'est adonné à l'écriture de récits brefs aux tonalités variées. Ce quantity rassemble près de trente textes rédigés pendant ses jeunes années de bohème et de journalisme. A leur lecture, c'est un Zola méconnu qui surgit soudain : fantaisiste, lorsqu'il met en scène l'errance dans Paris d'un lion et d'une hyène échappés du zoo (Une cage de bêtes féroces) ou lorsqu'il raconte l'histoire d'un homme qui décide, un beau matin, de faire trade de femmes laides (Les Repoussoirs), mais aussi promeneur inspiré et satiriste engagé... Qu'on ne s'y trompe pas : le romancier est déjà là tout entier. Qu'il croque le bourgeois (Villégiature) ou parodie l'engouement du public pour le roman populaire (Les Disparitions mystérieuses), qu'il s'indigne de los angeles misère (Le Chômage) ou raille l. a. montée en puissance de los angeles publicité (Une victime de l. a. réclame), le tempérament éclate à toutes les pages. Par los angeles richesse de leur suggestion, ces petits chefs-d'œuvre révèlent un auteur plus insaisissable et naturel que ne le laissent supposer les professions de foi naturalistes.
