She has everything; doting parents, a loving husband and family; all the comforts that the middle-classes have grown accustomed to. But she’s bored. She takes up all sorts of hobbies to try to make something happen in her life, but no matter what she does, nothing truly satisfies her, because deep down, she feels flat. Empty. Until she meets Philippe . . . In Madame Bovary of the Suburbs, Sophie Divry dramatises the philosophical conflict between freedom and comfort that marks women’s lives in a materialistic world.

"“With its winks and nods to Flaubert's Madame Bovary, this is one of the most exciting finds of the season.” LE MONDE
Divry's prose will remind readers of the best of Houellebecq, the cold, implacable historian who paints a precise portrait of an era and those who inhabit it and in doing so renders existence indelibly absurd.
A sharp, fresh novel about a woman who lives the life she's meant to lead but finds it lacking, set in provincial France, spanning from the 1950s to just shy of 2025."
