Overview

A NEW TRANSLATION BY ADAM THORPE





‘Adam Thorpe's version deserves to become the standard English text’ Daily Telegraph





When Thérèse Raquin is forced to marry her cousin, the spoilt and sickly Camille, she sees a life of loneliness and boredom stretching out before her. Escape comes in the form of her husband’s friend, the brutish Laurent, and Thérèse throws herself headlong into an affair. There seems only one obstacle to their happiness: Camille. But in plotting to be rid of him they risk the very desire that connects them.





‘A very dark book but a magnificent read’ Kirsty Wark

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

Meet the Author

Émile Zola (1840-1902) is the author of Les Rougon-Macquart – a cycle of 20 novels written over a period of 22 years including Nana(1880), Germinal (1885) and The Drinking Den (1877)- which provides a panoramic view of life under Napoleon III. He was the leading figure in the French school of naturalistic fiction. Zola campaigned for justice over the Dreyfus affair – ‘it is up to us poets to nail the guilty to the eternal pillory’ – and his open letter to the President ‘J’accuse’ landed him a prison sentence that he evaded only through exile in England. He is buried in the Panthéon alongside Rousseau, Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas.





Adam Thorpe was born in Paris in 1956. His first novel, Ulverton, was published in 1992, and he has written nine others, two collections of stories and six books of poetry – most recently Voluntary. Thorpe’s translation of Madame Bovary, ‘stunning and heartily recommended’ (Scotsman), is available in Vintage Classics. He lives in France with his wife and family.

    Reminds me of High School English

    I found this title listed with 'books you need to read before they become movies'. Was intrigued and so read it... reminded me a lot of Madame Bovary in High School English.
