Description
Information
This first book of Proust's supreme masterpiece, A la recherch du temps perdu, recalls the early youth of Charles Swann in the small, provincial backwater of Combray as seen through the eyes of the mature adult narrator. The story then moves forward to Swann's life as a man of fashion caught up in the glittering world of belle-epoque Paris. A scathing, often comic dissection of French society, Swann's Way is also a story of past moments tantalizingly lost, recaptured and finally, triumphantly rediscovered. C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation has itself become a classic.
