9780141180335: In Search of Lost Time: The Guermantes Way: The Guermantes Way v. 3 (Penguin Modern Classics)

Since the original prewar translation there has been no completely new rendering of the French original into English. This translation brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust. "In Search of Lost Time" is one of the greatest, most entertaining reading experiences in any language. As the great story unfolds from its magical opening scenes to its devastating end, it is the "Penguin Proust" that makes Proust accessible to a new generation. Each volume is translated by a different, superb translator working under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast, University of Cambridge.

Review:

"A version that wonderfully proves the greatness of this novel, this novelist" (Melvyn Bragg Guardian)

"What a genius! Whole pages cascade, like great jazz slaloms" (Bill Nighy The Times)

"One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon" ( The Times)

"It's a novel with zero plot, but the narrator's brilliant analyses of everyday experiences more than make up for it. I've never read a better description of what it feels like to fall asleep" (Alain de Botton Mail on Sunday)

"The plot is as gripping as any soap opera, the jokes come thick and fast...Proust's is a world entire - so why not take it with you anywhere in the world?" (Will Self Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

The definitive translation of the greatest French novel of the twentieth century
