Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time is one of the most entertaining reading experiences in any language and arguably one of the finest novels of the twentieth century. But since its original pre-World-War II translation there has been no completely new version in English. This edition brings Proust's masterpiece to new audiences with an internationally acclaimed translation of the first volume, Swann's Way.
Swann's Way is one of the preeminent novels of childhood: a sensitive boy's impressions of his family and neighbors, all brought dazzlingly back to life years later by the taste of a madeleine.
