James Grieve's acclaimed new translation of the second volume of In Search of Lost Time

In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower is Proust’s spectacular dissection of male and female adolescence, charged with the narrator’s memories of Paris and the Normandy seaside. At the heart of the story lie his relationships with his grandmother and with the Swann family. As a meditation on different forms of love, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower has no equal. Here, Proust introduces some of his greatest comic inventions, from the magnificently dull M. de Norpois to the enchanting Robert de Saint-Loup. It is memorable as well for the first appearance of the two figures who for better or worse are to dominate the narrator’s life—the Baron de Charlus and the mysterious Albertine.
  • First time in Penguin Classics
  • A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition
  • The first completely new translation of Proust's novel since the 1920s, following Lydia Davis's brilliant translation of Swann's Way
About The Author

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust was a French novelist, essayist and critic, best known as the author of la recherche du temps perdu (in English, In Search of Lost Time; earlier translated as Remembrance of Things Past), a monumental work of 20th-century fiction published in seven parts from 1913 to 1927.
Industry Reviews
Indispensable... the critical modernist work, overtop-ping the books of even such giants as Joyce and Mann. (Peter Brooks, "The New York Times Book Review")
