In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Thrse Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a turbulent affair with her husbands earthy friend, Laurent. But their passion for each other soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever. Thrse Raquin caused a scandal when it appeared in 1867 and brought its twenty seven-year-old author a notoriety that followed him throughout his life. Zolas novel is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery, madness, and ghostly revenge but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.
