Highly acclaimed actress Emilia Fox reads this classic tale of lust and despair. Emma Bovary is the beautiful, frustrated wife of a provincial doctor. Torn between fantasy and reality, Emma, mesmerising to the opposite sex, embarks upon love affairs that belie her class aspirations, but are true to her soul. Madame Bovary is a compelling portrayal of the intensity of human passion, a characteristic that is Emma's greatest attribute, yet one which ultimately leads to tragedy.
