The Guermantes Way
Viking's In Search of Lost Timeis the first completely new translation of Proust's masterwork since the 1920s. Under Christopher Prendergast's general editorship, these superb editions bring us a more rich, comic, and lucid Proust than American readers have previously been able to enjoy. After the relative intimacy of the first two volumes of In Search of Lost Time, The Guermantes Wayopens up a vast, dazzling landscape of fashionable Parisian life in the late nineteenth century as the narrator enters the brilliant, shallow world of the literary and aristocratic salons. Both a salute to and a devastating satire of a time, place, and culture, The Guermantes Waydefines the great tradition of novels that follow the initiation of a young man into the ways of the world.
