Peter Wickham brings us Henryk Sienkiewicz’s bestselling historical novel, Quo Vadis. Best known for its star-studded 1951 film version, Quo Vadis portrays the love between a young Christian woman and a Roman patrician during the opulent and hedonistic reign of Roman Emperor Nero. The novel contributed to the author’s Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905.
We also have The Ladies’ Paradise, another instalment in Émile Zola’s Rougon-Macquart series, read by Leighton Pugh. This depicts a cruel and unsympathetic department store owner – a self-declared manipulator of women who exploits his staff and his customers’ insecurities, until a young recruit ends up giving him more than he bargained for.
Quo Vadis, best known for its star-studded 1951 film version, was first published in 1896 and contributed to the author’s Nobel Prize for Literature of 1905.
