Steeped in history and beguilingly beautiful, but also stiflingly closed-minded, 19th-century Normandy both inspired and appalled the French novelist Gustave Flaubert. This fascinating, richly illustrated book explored the writer's love-hate relationship with the region that featured so prominently in his controversial work and colorful private life. Susannah Patton takes the reader to Flaubert's hometown of Rouen, with its stunning cathedral; to the windswept beaches of Trouville, where Flaubert first fell in love; to Croisset and the riverside refuge he shared with his mother; and to the bucolic towns of Ry and Lyons-la-Foret, where the real Madame Bovary lived and died.
