Madame Bovary

by Gustave Flaubert

Madame Bovary is one of the greatest, most beguiling novels ever written.

Emma Bovary is an avid reader of sentimental novels; brought up on a Normandy farm and convent-educated, she longs for romance. At first, Emma pins her hopes on marriage, but life with her well-meaning husband in the provinces leaves her bored and dissatisfied. She seeks escape through extravagant spending sprees and, eventually, adultery. As Emma pursues her impossible reverie she seals her own ruin.

'A great novel that is also an inexhaustible pleasure to read' Guardian
