About the Author

Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was born in Auteuil, France. In his twenties, following a year in the army, he became a conspicuous society figure, frequenting the most fashionable Paris salons of the day. After 1899, however, his chronic asthma, the deaths of his parents, and his growing disillusionment with humanity caused him to lead an increasingly retired life. From 1907 on, he rarely emerged from his apartment on Boulevard Haussmann, where he wrote letters and devoted himself to the completion of In Search of Lost Time. Ian Patterson (translator) is a poet and translator and a fellow of Queens' College, Cambridge, where he teaches English. He has published numerous essays on twentieth-century literature and is married to the writer Olivia Laing. Christopher Prendergast (general editor), the author of Living and Dying with Marcel Proust, is a professor emeritus of French literature at the University of Cambridge and a fellow of King's College.
