Profile of Emile Zola
Zola’s death is listed as September 28th by some sources, September 29th by others. He died overnight when the chimney on a bedroom stove stopped working, asphyxiating him and nearly killing his wife as well. We accept the 29th, based on a New York Times account in which Madame Zola says both were still alive in the early morning of that day.
