One is never far from a phrase that feels so acute and so true that it seems to be expressing an essential truth of the soul ... Like the best translations, it lets the author speak' Alain de Botton, The Times

In the Shadow of Young Girls in Floweris a spectacular dissection of male and female adolescence, and an unequalled meditation on different forms of love, charged with the narrator's memories of Paris and the Normandy seaside, and his relationships with his grandmother and the Swann family. Here Proust introduces some of his greatest comic inventions, from the magnificently dull M. de Norpois to the enchanting Robert de Saint-Loup, and introduces two figures who come to dominate the narrator's life - the Baron de Charlus and the mysterious Albertine.
