"Respectable people...what bastards!" - Emilé Zola

Lewis recently introduced me to the work of the writer Emilé Zola - at the moment, I have just begun reading The Belly of Paris. I admire his ability to go out and document the world around him in great detail - his books are precious resources, capturing the essence of a place and time before the existence of film.

I love his beard, and the white marks on his face tied in with the ones on his neck tie thingy :-)
