Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For any reader who has been humbled by the language, the density, or the sheer weight of Marcel Proust's , Roger Shattuck is a godsend. Winner of the National Book Award for Marcel Proust, a sweeping examination of Proust's life and works, Shattuck now offers a useful and eminently readable guidebook to Proust's epic masterpiece, and a contemplation of memory and consciousness throughout great literature.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, this illuminating work serves as both an introduction to Proust--perhaps Europe's most enduring 20th-century novelist--and a searching reinterpretation of his work, particularly the masterpiece "In Search of Lost Time".
