Since the original, prewar translation there has been no completely
new rendering of the French original into English. This translation
brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust.
IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME is one of the greatest, most entertaining
reading experiences in any language. As the great story unfolds
from its magical opening scenes to its devastating end, it is the
Penguin Proust that makes Proust accessible to a new generation.
Each book is translated by a different, superb translator working
under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast,
University of Cambridge.
