The Guermantes Way (Classics Deluxe Edition): In Search of Lost Time, Volume 3 (In Search of Lost Time) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the relative intimacy of the first two volumes of In Search of Lost Time, The Guermantes Way opens up a vast, dazzling landscape of fashionable Parisian life in the late nineteenth century, as the narrator enters the brilliant, shallow world of the literary and aristocratic salons. Both a salute to and a devastating satire of a time, place, and culture, The Guermantes Way defines the great tradition of novels that follow the initiation of a young man into the ways of the world. This elegantly packaged new translation will introduce a new generation of American readers to the literary richness of Marcel Proust.

  • First time in Penguin Classics
  • A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition with french flaps and luxurious design
  • Penguin Classics' superb new edition of In Search of Lost Time is the first completely new translation of Proust's masterwork since the 1920s
