[An] excellent introduction (supplemented by copious notes) [by] the Proust specialist Adam Watt. * Adrian Tahourdin, Times Literary Supplement *
[...] this new translation which concentrates on [Swann's] infatuation for Odette is a gentle and accessible introduction to Proust's monumental oeuvre, being quite self-contained and not nearly so daunting a read. * Robert Tanitch, Mature Times *
