Ian Patterson's acclaimed new translation of Finding Time Again
introduces a new generation of American readers to the literary riches of Marcel Proust.
The seventh and final volume in Penguin Classics' superb new edition of In Search of Lost Time--
the first completely new translation of Proust's masterpiece since the 1920s--brings us a more comic and lucid prose than readers of English have previously been able to enjoy.
In Finding Time Again
, Marcel discovers his world destroyed by war and those he knew transformed by the march of time. An exquisite picture of France in the throes of the First World War, and containing, in the "Bal des tÃªtes" sequence, one of Proust's most devastating set pieces, Finding Time Again
triumphantly describes the paradox of facing mortality yet overcoming it through the act of writing. As Marcel rediscovers his vocation, he realizes that he can live on by writing down the story of his own memories and of his quest to recapture the past.
