Marcel Proust portrays in abundant detail the life and extraordinary times of one of the greatest literary voices of the twentieth century. Based on a wealth of letters, memoirs, notebooks, and manuscripts previously unavailable, the book examines Proust's character and development as an artist, the glittering Parisian world of which he was a part, and the passions that enabled him to write his masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time.
