Example text

In late July, Clemenceau stood for election and won a seat on the council, where he soon began to play a leading role in the matters that concerned him most—public health, education, and assistance to the poor, especially to impoverished and abandoned children. He also was concerned about friends such as Louise Michel, with whom he had worked during the height of the siege to help the most destitute of Montmartre’s residents. With her help he had organized distribution centers for food and medicine.

9 The entire point of such an enterprise was to sell large quantities of merchandise to large numbers of buyers, at lower prices (and a lower profit margin) than ever before. Consumers flocked to Bon Marché and Samaritaine, drawn by the lower (and fixed) prices as well as by the delightful ambiance that these stores offered. Rather than stuffy and uninteresting destinations, shoppers (usually women) found themselves in huge and utterly tantalizing emporiums, where goods one didn’t really need suddenly became irresistible.

14 Promotion followed promotion, along with regular meals, an expanding waistline, and an increasingly comfortable life. Most importantly, he learned his way around the publishing business—no small achievement for an aspiring writer. His short stories sold first, bringing a heady taste of success. He married, provided for his mother, and found that life was looking better and better. His first book was a collection of his earliest short stories, which Zola came to regard as overly sentimental. Another soon followed, accompanied by some self-promotion that did not amuse his employers, who requested his resignation.
