Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time is one of the most entertaining reading experiences in any language and arguably the finest novel of the twentieth century. But since its original prewar translation there has been no completely new version in English. Now, Penguin Classics brings Proust's masterpiece to new audiences throughout the world, beginning with Lydia Davis's internationally acclaimed translation of the first volume, Swann's Way.
Much-honored translator Lydia Davis launches a new rendering of Proust's magisterial A la recherche du temps perdu. Expect the second volume next year. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
