Overview

In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Therese Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a turbulent affair with her husband's earthy friend Laurent, but their animal passion for each other soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them for ever. Therese Raquin caused a scandal when it appeared in 1867 and brought its twenty-seven-year-old author a notoriety that followed him throughout his life. Zola's novel is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery, madness and ghostly revenge, but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I love this because it's the story of how you can't escape the inevitabilities of love and it's just a fantastic piece of writing." —Sue Perkins, Express 

 "By merging elements of the gothic and tragic with a study of petit-bourgeois banality, Zola created a work of enduring fascination." —Observer 

 "It was attacked by critics of the day as stinking filth and a foul sewer. Little wonder, then, that it became an instant bestseller and I'll admit I was completely riveted by its melodramatics from start to finish." —Daily Mail

    'Yes, little one, adventure.' She spoke telepathically to the 8-year-old girl, heaving herself to her paws. Starting to trot after Securan, the young dragon glanced back over her shoulder at Amalia. 'Are you coming?'

    She smiled lightly and ignored the jewel inside. Instead she touched the roses petal softly with a scarred hand.

    Remember that the healing spell only closes wounds, not internal healing. And magic saps your energy, so be careful. Or you could die!!
