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 entertaining reading experiences in any language.

Each book is translated by a different, superb translator working under the general editorship of Professor Christopher Prendergast, University of Cambridge.
