In Secret is the story of a young woman, Therese Raquin, mired in a loveless marriage to a sickly, self-centered man. Trapped in a house owned by her pitiless mother-in-law, she yearns for love and escape. She finds it in the arms of her husband's best friend--and the only way they can find happiness is through murder. What follows is the stuff of nightmares. Emile Zola's story is as vibrant today as it was when it was written 150 years ago. Scorned by critics for the perversity and violence of his characters, Zola nonetheless went on to be one of the greatest and most popular writers in the history of literature. Soon to be a Major Motion Picture, In Secret is a compelling and modern story of guilt and its consequences. This edition is amplified by an important introduction by Stephen R. Pastore, one of the world's leading Zola scholars and the addition of material for use by Book Discussion Groups as well as the Movie Tie-In edition for the upcoming film IN SECRET.

In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Thérèse Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. When Thérèse embarks on a turbulent affair with her husband's earthy friend Laurent, their passion for each other and desire for freedom soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever. First published in 1867 as Thérèse Raquin—and earning Émile Zola his first taste of scandal and success—this novel was in 2014 adapted as the film In Secret, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Oscar Isaac."By merging elements of the gothic and tragic with a study of petit-bourgeois banality, Zola created a work of enduring fascination."—Guardian (London) 225.
