Trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin Camille, Therese Raquin embarks upon an illicit, turbulent affair with her husband’s friend Laurent, that ultimately leads to madness, violence and murder. Written in 1867, Emile Zola’s seminal novel was a literary sensation. Its honest and powerful portrayal of the overwhelming force of human desire remains shocking to this day.
