Description

Marcel Proust's "In Search of Lost Time" is one of the most entertaining reading experiences in any language and arguably the finest novel of the twentieth century. But since its original prewar translation there has been no completely new version in English. Now, Penguin Classics brings Proust's masterpiece to new audiences throughout the world, beginning with Lydia Davis's internationally acclaimed translation of the first volume, "Swann's Way."


@RaidersOfTheLostTime I can't wait for Mom to tuck me in. Perhaps I'm too old for this, but then I see light in the hall as she approaches and think, Nah!
My father wants me to stop behaving like such a little momma's boy in front of the guests, but what does he know?
Aunt is such a big part of life. She's also a big pain in the derriere. But ohhh, those snack-cakes make me so HOT.
From "Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less"

Reviews
Indispensable... the crucial modernist work, overtopping the books of even such giants as Joyce and Mann. (Peter Brooks, "The New York Times Book Review")
