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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
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.

At a good price too. My 89-year old mother is approaching the end of volume one and, at her present rate, will certainly get much further than I ever did. Finished by Christmas no doubt.
Go on, take it on - unless you read French, in which case it's the Garnier.
