Replay Event: On Marcel Proust

Author, publisher, and internationally acclaimed Proust scholar Jean-Yves Tadié and author and Barnard professor Caroline Weber joined us May 8 to discuss the Proust issue of Les Cahiers de L’Herne and the 75-page unpublished novel by the greatest 20th century novelist.

As Marcel Proust is a godfatherly figure to Albertine, it was a tremendous honor and profound joy to host–even virtually–Jean-Yves Tadié, who edited the 1987-1989 four-volume Pléiade edition of In Search of Lost Time and published a landmark biography of its author (Marcel Proust: A Life, trans by Euan Cameron, ed. Viking). We were also joined by Caroline Weber, author of Proust’s Duchess: How Three Celebrated Women Captured the Imagination of Fin-de-Siècle Paris (ed. 2018), a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the American Library of Paris Book Prize and winner of the French Heritage Society Literary Award.

You can purchase copies of Les Cahiers de L’Herne, Marcel Proust, and a copy of Proust’s unpublished novel at our store or online.
