In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower by Marcel Proust
Book DescriptionIn the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower is Proust s spectacular dissection of male and female adolescence, charged with the narrator s memories of Paris and the Normandy seaside. At the heart of the story lie his relationships with his grandmother and with the Swann family. As a meditation on different forms of love, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower has no equal. Here, Proust introduces some of his greatest comic inventions, from the magnificently dull M. de Norpois to the enchanting Robert de Saint-Loup. It is memorable as well for the first appearance of the two figures who for better or worse are to dominate the narrator s life the Baron de Charlus and the mysterious Albertine.First time in Penguin ClassicsA Penguin Classics Deluxe EditionThe first completely new translation of Proust's novel since the 1920s, following Lydia Davis's brilliant translation of Swann's Way"
