Considered one of the greatest, and most influential, writers of the 20th century, Marcel Proust was also one of its most fascinating figures. A strange, reclusive genius who often lay in bed for days at a time obsessively rewriting his masterpiece, Remembrance of Things Past, Proust was at other times a tireless socialite, attending the grandest parties and dazzling guests with his vivacity and wit. But as a boy Proust was yearning and lonely, an ambitious grasper after honors, and a miserably closeted homosexual, an aspect of his life that this book explores frankly and perceptively.

    " Very helpful for starting the journey into In Search of Lost Time. It's clear to me now that of all the modernists, Proust focuses most on sexuality and social mores, and also on obsession, desire and illness (or obsessive desire AS illness, for that matter) so this little sketch on how those themes emerge from his life and his world is good grounding. "
