This is the original Languedoc Novel - and no tranquil retelling of restoring farmhouses and winetasting with local plumbers here. Mrs Radcliffe's over-the-top bodice ripper is widely credited with being the original gothic novel and set the tone for 200 years of heavy panting, torrid traumas and unbridled desires. The South of France is the backdrop for a novel that inspired countless Hammer and Hollywood horror flicks and set the scene for Jane Austen's classic Northanger Abbey. Available from 2010
