Cézanne et Moi by Danièle Thompson

CÉZANNE ET MOI traces the parallel paths of the lives, careers and passionate friendship of post-impressionist
painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola. The two boys grew up in Aix-en-Provence. Emile was
fatherless and poor. Paul came from a wealthy family. As young men, dreaming of glory and beautiful
women, they left the south to conquer the art scene in Paris. Soon Emile had it all, success, money, and the
perfect wife, and embraced the very bourgeoisie he mocked in his books. Meanwhile, Cézanne rejected the
Parisian scene to focus only on his work, ignored by his peers and the establishment.
