This life of Marcel Proust will send readers back to Proust's classic REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST. To those who have never read it, or to those who have previously tried and failed, Edmund White's evocation of Proust's life and work will be the guide. White has a psychologist's appreciation for the strange personality of this charismatic genius. We see Proust the recluse who lay in bed all night long in his cork-lined room, obsessively rewriting his one massive work - but we also see the yearning, lonely boy, the brilliant wit and socialite, the ambitious grasper after honours, and the miserably closeted homosexual. White, the author of an award-winning biography of Jean Genet and of the classic gay novel A BOY'S OWN STORY, is uniquely suited to write this book, and Proust is currently enjoying a renaissance.Reseña del editor:
This literary biography of Marcel Proust provides readers with an insight into the recluse who lay all night long in his cork-lined room, obsessively rewriting his one massive work. It also shows the yearning lonely boy, the brilliant wit - and the miserably closeted homosexual.
