More About the Author
Marcel Proust was arguably the 20th century's greatest artist and thinker. The first half of his life he whiled away as a self-conscious aesthete and social climber. The second half he spent in the creation of the mighty autobiographical novel REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST, memorialising his own dandyism and youthful high jinks, even as he revealed their essential hollowness. Upon publication in the 1920s the book scandalised the French establishment, such was its explicitness.

I have been intrigued by Proust's chef-d'oeuvre for some time, but have been somewhat daunted at reading the original in full. This is a delightful introduction. The illustrations are charming and enrich the script. Proust's life and world have been brought to life. I have also purchased the other three volumes so far published. I think a total of twelve are planned.
i know I will ultimately be encouraged to read the original in full. But I shan't let these go. Long live the graphic novel.
