About this Event

SEPTEMBER SELECTION: La Bête humaine by Emile Zola - La Bête humaine, often cited as a masterwork, tells a story that details the psychological dissolution of a working man named Jacques Lantier. On board a train bound for the French port city of Le Havre, stationmaster Roubard murders a man who seduced his beautiful young wife Severine. Jacques Lantier also seduces Severine, who tries to entice Lantier to murder the abusive and controlling Roubard. Lantier has urges and tendencies of his own however that change everything and bring the novel to a brilliant close. A suspenseful, violent psycholgical thriller written in 1890 by the brilliant Emile Zola.
