Publisher Comments:

A BEAUTIFUL NOVEL OF MEMORY, YOUTH, AND OLD AGE, FROM THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNER Claude Simon, a Nobel Prize - winning author and cultural icon in France, here presents a Proustian novel, exquisitely intermingling the memories of youth and old age. His madeleine is the trolley of the book's title, the transport that took him to and from school every morning of his childhood. As the book progresses, we move from childhood into old age, and our narrator is now on a different form of transport, a mobile hospital bed, beginning a different voyage into old age. When coincidences unite the two trajectories, the story becomes a fugue of memory that has delighted critics and made the book a bestseller in France.
