View all copies of this ISBN edition:

With a fair claim to being the greatest European novel of the 20th century, IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME has never been translated consistently and fully before. The sheer scale of the book has caused problems only now solved by assigning each volume to a different translator. This endlessly funny, moving, strange novel is treated by many of its readers as something to return to again and again and this brilliantly designed boxed set at last offers everyone the best chance to enjoy it.

From the Back Cover:

“Twice amended to bring it to documentary decorum and the kind of textual completion Proust himself could never achieve, the C. K. Scott Moncrieff translation of the Search, buffed, rebuffed, lightened, tightened, and in the abstergent sense, brightened, constitutes a monument which is also a medium—the medium by which to gain access to the book, the books, even the apocrypha of modern scripture. A triumph of tone, of a single (and singular) vision, this ultimate revision of the primary version affords the surest sled over the ice fields as well as the most sinuous surfboard over the breakers of Proustian prose, an invaluable and inescapable text.” —Richard Howard

About the Author:

MARCEL PROUST (1871-1922) spent the early part of his life in Parisian high society before eventually retreating to his famous cork-lined room to devote the rest of his life to writing IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME. The first four volumes were published either in his lifetime or under his direct supervision and THE PRISONER, THE FUGITIVE and TIME FOUND AGAIN taken from almost final drafts.
