In his last years, ill and aware that his early death was fast approaching, Marcel Proust seldom left the confines of his apartment. As the German bombs rained down on Paris, he worked desperately to complete his great novel, "In Search of Lost Time". Yet, although his illness and his dedication to his work meant that he rarely saw anyone but a few servants, Proust remained an indefatigable correspondent. He reached out to his wide circle of friends through his letters, and they vividly demonstrate that his great humanity, wit and compassion remained undimmed by his isolation and failing health. This, the fourth and final volume of the selected letters of Marcel Proust, brings to a close one of the greatest collections of correspondence in any language, at any time.

Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was one of the handful of indisputably great writers of this century. Troubled by ill-health throughout his life, he largely withdrew from society in 1907, to work on his incomparable 16-volume novel In Search of Lost Time. He lived long enough to see the publication of its first volumes, and to experience its universal reception as a work of genius.
