Description: An accessible, irreverent guide to one of the most admiredand entertainingnovels of the past century. There is no other guide like this; a user-friendly and enticing entry into themarvelously enjoyable world of Proust, aimed at the same audience that loved David Shapard's Annotated Pride&Prejudice. At seven volumes, three thousand pages, and more than four hundred characters, as well as a towering reputation as a literary classic, Proust's novel can seem daunting. It is in fact, after a century, as enjoyable and relevant to our times as ever. Patrick Alexander is passionate about Proust's genius and appealhe calls the work "outrageously bawdy and extremely funny"and in his guide he makes it more accessible to the general reader through detailed plot summaries, historical and cultural background, a guide to the fifty most important characters, maps, illustrations, and a brief biography of Proust. Essential for readers and book groups currently reading Proust and who want help keeping track of the huge cast and intricate plot, this Reader's Guide is also a wonderful introduction for students and new readers and a memory-refresher for long-time fans.
