In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
Book DescriptionThis is an acclaimed, fully revised edition of the Scott Moncrieff and Kilmartin translation. In "The Guermantes Way", Proust's narrator recalls his initiation into the dazzling world of Parisian high society. Looking back over his time in the glamorous salons of the aristocracy, he satirises this shallow world and his own youthful infatuation with it. His observations, and his experiences with his lover Albertine, also educate him in the volatile nature of desire as he walks the path towards adulthood.

Books By Author Marcel Proust
Chardin and Rembrandt, Paperback (December 2016)
Proposed in 1895 by Proust to the newspaper Revue hebdomadaire (it was rejected), this essay is a literary experiment in which an unnamed narrator gives advice to a young man suffering from melancholy, taking him on an imaginary tour through the Louvre where his readings of Chardin imbue the everyday world with new meaning.

Proust's masterpiece is one of the seminal works of the twentieth century, recording its narrator's experiences as he grows up, falls in love and lives through the First World War. This book deals with his life and work.

In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower, Paperback (January 2016)» View all books by Marcel Proust
"A triumph . . . will bring this inexhaustible artwork to new audiences throughout the English-speaking world."--Malcolm Bowie, "Sunday Telegraph."
UK Kirkus Review » People think they don't need to bother with Proust. They know about the madeleine, they know it's about remembering the past, they know that not much happens and they know it's 3000 pages long. People speak about getting to the end of it in the same way as they talk of climbing Everest or running the marathon - but this is all wrong. It's not hard to read and gathers you up in its momentum. It is also horribly funny, heartbreaking, beautifully observed and intelligent with a clarity that makes you feel intelligent as well. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Marcel Proust
Marcel Proust was born in Auteuil in 1871. In his twenties he became a conspicuous society figure, frequenting the most fashionable Paris salons of the day. After 1889, however, his suffering from chronic asthma, the death of his parents and his growing disillustionment with humanity caused him to lead an increasingly retired life. He slept by day and worked by night, writing letters and devoting himself to the completion of A la recherche du temps perdu. He died in 1922 before publication of the last three volumes of his great life's work.
