Read full description of the books:



Posy Simmonds' version of Madame Bovary – the precursor to her magnum opus Tamara Drewe, a reimagining of Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd – loosely applies the framework of Flaubert's tragedy to the tale of Charlie and Gemma Bovery, a dissatisfied upper-middle-class 90s Brit couple who do that very upper-middle-class 90s Brit couple thing of relocating to a rustic farmhouse in rural France. There's a framing device in which their neighbour in the sleepy town of Bailleville, the hapless (and incurably nosy) baker/frustrated author Joubert, frets over his burgeoning obsession with Gemma and his twin concerns that a) she is doomed to suffer the same fate as her near-namesake and b) he is, by sheer force of will, leading her to follow that very path. This is a hybrid of novel and comic book: much of the story is told through chunks of text, representing Joubert's narration, with accompanying illustrations showing what really happened. Initially I actually found Gemma Bovery more difficult to get along with than the original novel, but once I settled into its rhythm, I loved it. Despite the downbeat ending, quite delightful stuff.
