Proust Among the Stars: How To Read Him; Why Read Him? by Malcolm Bowie
Not for sale in

Not Available

The first book to address everyone who relishes reading Proust and wants to know more about how his writing works.

This is a matchless close reading of a literary masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time, and a lesson in how to read the Great Books profitably and pleasurably.

‘Read this excellent book’ Stuart Jeffries, Guardian

‘Very refreshing… a splendidly tough-minded and generous introduction’ Gabriel Josipovici, Independent

‘Brilliant’ Peter Conrad, Observer

‘A splendidly thought-filled book’ Eric Griffiths, Evening Standard

A book that recalls that Proust’s novel is one of the great exercises in speculative imagining in the world’s literature; and that its originality lies first in the quality of Proust’s textual invention, page after page, line after line. Art, death, sex, politics, loss, guilt, morality – all Proust’s major themes are here in all their glory, but revealed close up.
