Richly illustrated with maps, historical and contemporary photographs, and period artwork, this guidebook takes tourists and armchair travelers on a stimulating journey through the small towns, rolling hills, and windswept coast of Flaubert’s Normandy. The novelist’s homes and the locations that are prominently featured in his controversial works are the focus of this pictorial travel guide, and include the ancient town of Rouen, where Flaubert was born in 1821; the resort town of Trouville and its frequently painted beach; Croisset, where Flaubert’s riverside house gave him the refuge to write; and the quiet country town of Ry, which claims to be where the real Madame Bovary lived and died.

In the end Braithwaite finds that, in fact, neither of the two parrots is likely genuine, and Flaubert’s parrot could have been any one of the dozens once stored at Rouen’s Museum of Natural History, which is now closed to

Flaubert— protested the modernization. Flaubert called the addition “grotesque” and compared it to putting an “oblong cage” atop his beloved cathedral. It is easy to imagine what these critics would have thought of the evening light and music show that now regularly transforms the historic monument into a flashing, twenty-first-century spectacle. A City for Flaubert Scholars In 1914, Flaubert’s niece and sole heir, Caroline Franklin Grout, gave Rouen’s 13 Bibliothèque Municipale, at 3 rue

the village or monument. Some, such as Ry, are clearly tied to Flaubert. Le Héron At the age of sixteen, Flaubert was invited to a lavish reception in a château at Le Héron. Some say this experience inspired his description of Emma’s visit to La Vaubyessard, where she is delighted and awed by the slice of upper-class life. “Then, late in September, something exceptional happened: she was invited to La Vaubyessard, home of the marquis d’Andervilliers.” When she returns after the party to her

The mourners then made their way toward the city and to the Cimetière Monumental in Rouen, which sits on a hill looking down on Rouen’s rooftops and many church steeples. There, Flaubert would rejoin his parents, his younger sister, and his friend Louis Bouilhet. 116 Fellow writer Edmond de Goncourt admired
