This beautiful clothbound edition of Victor Hugo's tale of injustice, heroism and love, in a major new translation by Christine Donougher, is published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the novel's first publication, and the major new film starring Hugh Jackman. Les MisÚrables follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, when, owing to a case of mistaken identity, another man is arrested in his place; and by the relentless investigations of the dogged policeman Javert. It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty.
