About the Author

Marcel Proust was born in Paris in 1871. His family belonged to the wealthy upper middle class, and Proust began frequenting aristocratic salons at a young age. Leading the life of a society dilettante, he met numerous artists and writers. He wrote articles, poems, and short stories (collected as Les Plaisirs et les Jours), as well as pastiches and essays (collected as Pastiches et Melanges) and translated John Ruskin's Bible of Amiens. He then went on to write novels. He died in 1922.

'Captures the essence of Proust beautifully' The Economist

'Brilliant . . . Heuet's love of Proust shines through in his inventive drawings' The Independent

'Audacious . . . Heuet's strip is particularly strong on the images that constitute the life of the mind, on the way landscapes are magnified by expectation or softened by nostalgia' Financial Times

'A triumph' New Statesman

'Resplendent' TLS

'Sumptuous, elegant and beautifully paced, it is completely absorbing...I'll be forever glad to have spent so much time bent over it' The Observer

'A literary gateway drug' NPR
