    Bucknell University Press 2013; US$ 39.99

    In this book, Austin argues against the traditional critical view that minimizes Proust’s practice of pastiche—the imitation of a writer’s style—and that considers it a simple exercise of mastering the predecessor. Instead, this work establishes pastiche as a powerful, ubiquitous practice central to Proust’s entire oeuvre. more...
