The book

Living and Dying with Marcel Proust is the result of a lifetime’s reading of, reflection on, and love for Proust’s masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time.

Christopher Prendergast, one of the world’s foremost literary scholars, and general editor of the most recent translation of À la recherche du temps perdu, has produced a highly entertaining book that takes in such disparate Proustian obsessions as insomnia, food and digestion, colour, addiction, memory, breath and breathing, breasts, snobbism, music, and humor.

Living and Dying with Marcel Proust will surely become the companion for all future readers either about to reembark on Proust’s three-million-word journey or setting out for the first time.

“A work buzzing with appetite and curiosity... a real delight. No Proustian should be without it.”
—Andrew Marr
