The Magnetic Diaries is simultaneously a narrative in poems, a critical appreciation, and a book of literary hide and seek. Taking the characters and storyline of Gustave Flaubert's 19th-century masterpiece Madame Bovary, Sarah James re-envisages them in a modern 21st-century English setting. The contemporary heroine, Emma Bailey, battles with similar romantic idealism, illusions about love, a stifling middle-class lifestyle, boredom, and depression.
