Product Details


“White has a novelist’s eye for the telling detail or the remarkable phrase and, like Proust himself, concentrates upon the minutiae of the past so that it might live again. He has a wonderful sympathy with his subject, adduced in such reflections as ”Proust fancied that so long as he failed to begin his life’s work, his life would go on.” — Peter Ackroyd, The New York Times Book Review

“White’s deft prose is densely packed with information but never burdensome. He gives a good sense of why Proust’s work is valuable, and why it remains eternally fresh.” — Washington Post

“A tale of twentieth-century literature ‘par excellence’ that White makes fun, accessible, and insightful.”
-The Philadelphia Inquirer

“White’s biography of Proust is a paragon of the genre; an engrossing and delightful piece of work.”
-Norah Vincent, author of Self-Made Man
