Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Reading was so important to Marcel Proust that it sometimes seems he was unable to create a personage without a book in hand. Everybody in his work reads: servants and masters, children and parents, artists and physicians. The more sophisticated characters find it natural to speak in quotations. Proust made literary taste a means of defining personalities and gave literature an actual role to play in his novels.
   In this wonderfully entertaining book, scholar and biographer Anka Muhlstein, the author of Balzac’s Omelette, draws out these themes in Proust's work and life, thus providing not only a friendly introduction to the momentous In Search of Lost Time, but also exciting highlights of some of the finest work in French literature.

Summary: "With Monsieur Proust's Library, Anka Muhlstein has added another volume to the collection of splendid books about Proust. A woman of intellectual refinement, subtle understanding and deep literary cultureMs. Muhlstein is an excellent provisioner of high-quality intellectual goods." - Wall Street Journal ".Anka Muhlstein's Monsieur Proust's Library, which looks at In Search of Lost Time by way of the books that Proust himself read and the way they influenced both the book and its characters, has become a permanent addition to my Proust library, and is a must read both for Proustians and want-to-be Proustians alike.It's a marvelous book." -Publishing Perspectives "The author of Balzac's Omelette offers another sensual appreciation of a classic author, this time submitting to the books that Proust loved.You don't absolutely need to know In Search of Lost Time to read Muhlstein's brisk little volume, a mini-biography that dissects the many literary influences of [Proust]." - The Daily Beast (Hot Reads).
