2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
This carefully crafted ebook: "The Four Gospels: Fruitfulness + Labour + Truth - Justice (unfinished)"is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

Vérité (1903, published posthumously)
"Fruitfulness" is the first of a series of three works in which M. Zola proposes to embody what he considers to be the four cardinal principles of human life. These works spring from the previous series of The Three Cities: "Lourdes", "Rome", and "Paris", which dealt with the principles of Faith, Hope, and Charity.
