‘Monumental … an epic of rediscovery, of a life re-searched, re-examined and re-experienced … one of the great social satires, and one of the finest of psychological novels’
Malcolm Bradbury

‘A single, monumental work of art … [Treharne] succeeds in conveying both the most ambitious flights of lyricism and the rhythms and idiosyncrasies of speech’
Richard Parish, The Times Higher Education Supplement

‘One of the miracles of European literature … Mark Treharne … catches much of the comedy, by turns black, bitter and slapstick’
Paul Davis, Guardian

The Guermantes Wayopens us a vast, dazzling landscape of fashionable Parisian life in the late nineteenth century, as the narrator enters the brilliant, shallow world of the literary and aristocratic salons. Both a salute to and a devastating satire on a time, place and culture, The Guermantes Wayis in the great tradition of novels that follow the initiation of a young man into the ways of the world.
