Synopsis: Through the exclusive documents that Patricia Mante-Proust inherited, she revisits her rich family history in images and anecdotes This first publication of a collection of original Proustian treasures includes numerous documents from the family's collection in the National Archives and items found in the drawers of Aunt Léonie's famous house in Illiers-Combray, as well as correspondence, rare and unpublished manuscripts, and memories rediscovered in the places that Proust frequented and loved. Its purpose is to celebrate a life and an era that, through the magic of an inimitable style, will live for eternity. For a long time I used to go to bed early is probably one of the most famous quotations from French literature, the very first words of an epic structure compared by its author to a cathedral. In the case of Remembrance of Things Past it is impossible to distinguish between the author and the work. No writer has ever pushed introspection and remembrance to such a level. Through his prodigious quest for the flavor of the little madeleine cake, he has acquired an almost mystical aura for generations of readers throughout the world. Proust has often been described as feverish, excessively shy, a recluse in his cork-lined room; yet, between visions and real-life experiences, who was Marcel Proust in reality? Could the famous Questionnaire that he compiled and answered and that bears his name shed any light on this enigma?

Book Description »Lange Zeit bin ich früh schlafen gegangen .« Mit diesen Worten, der vielleicht berühmtesten ersten Zeile der französischen Literatur, beginnt ein Meisterwerk, das von seinem eigenen Autor als Kathedrale bezeichnet wird: »Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit«. Niemals zuvor hat sich ein Schriftsteller so meisterlich der Introspektion und der Mechanismen der Erinnerung bedient. Die Rätsel, die die »Recherche« uns aufgibt, sind eine Einladung, uns mit den Mysterien und Geheimnissen seines über die Maßen phantasiebegabten Autors zu beschäftigen. Zeitgenossen beschrieben Proust als nervösen, quälend schüchternen Menschen, der sich die meiste Zeit in sein mit Kork ausgelegtes Schlafzimmer zurückzog, doch wer war Marcel Proust wirklich? Und was verrät der berühmte Questionnaire über ihn, dieser Fragebogen, den er einst ausfüllte und der nun seinen Namen trägt? Der vorliegende prächtige Bildband im Folio-Format nähert sich dem literarischen Genie auf ganz neuen Wegen; mit Fotos, Manuskriptseiten und anderen einzigartigen Zeitdokumenten, hier zum Teil erstmals veröffentlicht.
