Flaubert's classic novel, now on CD read by Emilia Fox
Emma Bovary is the beautiful, frustrated wife of a provincial doctor. Torn between fantasy and reality, Emma, mesmerising to the opposite sex, embarks upon love affairs which belie her class aspirations, but are true to her soul. Madame Bovary is a compelling portrayal of the intensity of human passion, a characteristic which is Emma s greatest attribute, yet one which ultimately leads to tragedy.
