A new definitive text of Marcel Proust's novel was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989. For the present six-volume edition, D. J. Enright has further revised Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed revision of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation, and has incorporated significant new material. As a result, Proust's masterpiece emerges with renewed freshness and authority in this unassailable translation. Each volume contains notes, addenda and synopses, and the sixth and final volume also includes a Guide to the complete work.

About the Author

Marcel Proust was born in Paris in 1871. He studied law at the Sorbonne but was drawn to writing, and published his first work in 1896. After the death of his parents in the early 1900s he gradually withdrew from society, eventually spending the majority of his time in his cork-lined bedroom. IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME is his major work, developed during the last decade of his life. He died in 1922.

People think they don't need to bother with Proust. They know about the madeleine, they know it's about remembering the past, they know that not much happens and they know it's 3000 pages long. People speak about getting to the end of it in the same way as they talk of climbing Everest or running the marathon - but this is all wrong. It's not hard to read and gathers you up in its momentum. It is also horribly funny, heartbreaking, beautifully observed and intelligent with a clarity that makes you feel intelligent as well. (Kirkus UK)
