Albertine Book Club on The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust
Join us for a lively conversation with Caroline Weber, author and professor, and Thibault Lacarrière, Cultural Attaché and Director, Books & Ideas Department at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy on The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust, translated from the French by Mark Treharne (Penguin).
After the relative intimacy of the first two volumes of In Search of Lost Time, The Guermantes Way opens up a vast, dazzling landscape of fashionable Parisian life in the late nineteenth century, as the narrator enters the brilliant, shallow world of the literary and aristocratic salons. Both a salute to and a devastating satire of a time, place, and culture, The Guermantes Way defines the great tradition of novels that follow the initiation of a young man into the ways of the world.
