Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Proust, now a teenager, describes his first separation from his mother, a vacation taken in a high class beach resort in Normandy. Besides the fleeting visions of young girls, he also keenly observes, without acidity but detached amusement, the petty sophistry of the French upper class in its genteel environs, safely removed from the lower ones. “An important social question is to know whether the pane of glass will always protect the feast of the marvelous beasts and if the obscure people peering at them through the night will not come and pick them out of their aquarium and eat them.”

Synopsis:

The Remembrance of Things Past series is a remarkable multivolume graphic novel adaptation of the classic that stirred up the literary world, even hitting the front page of the New York Times. "Heuet has successfully made Proust's work more accessible."--"Publishers Weekly"

Synopsis:

After befriending the young Marquis de Saint-Loup-en-Bray, the adolescent Proust is introduced to the painter Elstir, who gives him the opportunity to meet some of the young ladies he has been longing to know.
