    Although many writers blend autobiography and fiction, few have been so forthright in admitting it as Gustave Flaubert. Reflecting on his legendary novel and protagonist, he wrote: "Madame Bovary, c'est moi."

In this lively, learned, and very personal study, Maraini explores the profound and contradictory relationship between the writer Flaubert and the captivating heroine of his masterpiece
