Proust's monumental work has been described as the masterwork of masterworks; its place in the history of world literature was assured long ago. Yet since Scott Moncrieff's original translation, there has been no brand-new rendering of the French original into English. Now, Penguin is proud to present a superb new translation of this seminal work for the twenty-first century. Tthis translation brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust than English readers have previously been able to enjoy. Language, and its rich variety and extravagances, is very much at the centre of this translation by many hands; a team of translators is ideally placed to capture Proust's world of multiple styles and modes of writing.

Marcel Proust (1871-1922) is now generally viewed as the greatest French novelist and perhaps the greatest European novelist of the 20th century. He lived much of his later life as a reclusive semi-invalid in a sound-proofed flat in Paris, giving himself over entirely to writing IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME.
