  • Magnificent. I insist everyone reads Adam Thorpe's new translation

  • The most scandalous novel of all time

  • Flaubert's 1856 novel begins with marriage and what follows is the archetypal tale of a desperate housewife

    Daily Telegraph
  • ‘Thorpe's new translation of Madame Bovary is to die for’

  • [Thorpe’s] hard work has yielded beauty. The rhythms are perfectly judged, unexpected enough to make the reader attend to every word
