Description
(Winner of the French-American Foundation Translation Prize) Beautiful and bored, Emma Bovary finds little pleasure in motherhood or in her marriage to a provincial doctor. Embarking on a spending spree and two successive affairs, the increasingly distraught Emma eventually confronts the possibility that happiness may be unattainable, and takes drastic action. Gustave Flaubert was charged with obscenity upon the 1857 publication of this novel, although after his acquittal it became a bestseller; adapted many times for stage and screen, in 2014 it was filmed with Mia Wasikowska in the title role. Man Booker International Prize winner Lydia Davis provides this meticulous, nuanced translation of a timeless classic.

"Flaubert's strict, elegant, rhythmic sentences come alive in Davis's English."—James Wood, The New Yorker
