Product Details

Praise

“Published in 1973, Monsieur Proust is a remarkable evocation of the spiritual sacrifices and flashes of grace that inform genius and those who serve it.” — Hilton Als, The New Yorker

“the housekeeper’s indispensable 1973 memoir” — Benjamin Strong, The Village Voice

“A fond and winning picture of the daily life of a great writer and reclusive man, with his foibles, worries and kindnesses. This alluring volume is as close as we can come to meeting Marcel Proust in person.” — Sunday Telegraph

“Monsieur Proust
is moving, often unwittingly funny, [and it conveys] something of the fabulous quality of an existence literally held in thrall by Proust. The book is rich in concrete and, one feels, authentic details that give an unprecedented and entertaining picture of Proust’s daily life.” — Germaine Brée, The New Republic

“…[a ] marvelous and compelling document…” — Claire Messud, New York Newsday
