Synopses & Reviews
This collection of over a dozen short stories by the author of Remembrance of Things Past includes several tales previously untranslated into English.
Collected here is the first new translation in half a century of Marcel Proust's collection Pleasures and Days, as well as six stories translated into English for the first time. Together they comprise a winning composite portrait of early twentieth-century Parisian street, salon, and bedroom scenes, and explore Proust's pet themes of vanity, sexual mores, mortality, and the malleability of time.
This volume gathers together all of Marcel Proust's short fiction and six tales never before translated into English.
