520    Fans of Flaubert's Madame Bovary will want to read this 
       reimagination of one of literature's most famous failures,
       Charles Bovary. Part fiction, part philosophy, Charles 
       Bovary, Country Doctor is also a book about love. Jean 
       Améry undertakes one of the most unusual projects in 
       twentieth-century literature: a novel-essay devoted to 
       salvaging the poor bungler Charles Bovary from the 
       depredations of his creator, Gustave Flaubert. As a once-
       promising novelist reduced to hack journalism for two 
       decades after the Second World War, Améry had a particular
       sympathy for failure, and Charles Bovary, Country Doctor 
       is his phenomenology of the loser, blending fiction and 
       philosophy to assert the moral claims of the most famous, 
       most risible cuckold in all of Western literature. Charles
       tells his side, Améry vindicates Flauberts hated 
       bourgeoisie, and in the end, the Master himself winds up 
       in the docket, forced to account for the implausibility of
       his own vaunted realism. At the same time, in Charless 
       words, Améry offers a moving paean to the majesty of Emma 
       Bovary herself, and to the supreme value of love.
