Pleasures and Days by Marcel Proust

Condition - Very Good
Only 2 left


Rich in language and detail, and by turns satirical and moving, Proust's stories - presented here in Andrew Brown's nuanced translation, the only edition currently in print - are layered with imagery and feeling and foreshadow the themes and psychological atmosphere of his later masterpiece.
