Since the original, prewar translation there has been no completely new rendering of the French original into English. This translation brings to the fore a more sharply engaged, comic and lucid Proust. IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME is one of the greatest, most enjoyable reading experiences in any language. As the great story unfolds from its magical opening scenes to its devastating end, it is the Penguin Proust that makes Proust accessible to a new generation. Each book is translated by a different, superb translator working under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Book These are incredible, everyone should read them. Best books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true classic #plumreview Somewhat embarrassed as to how long it took me to actually finish these, considering how long ago they were bought. Such depth from what would be normally cast off as mundane.
