Description

'Startlingly audacious.' Literary Review


New writing from the literary master


Throughout Proust's life, nine of his short stories remained unseen - the writer never even spoke of them. Perhaps he was not ready to share the early themes he was nurturing for his masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time . Or perhaps, in dealing directly with gay desire, they were too audacious - too near to life - for the censorious society of the time.


In these stories, published in English for the first time, we find an intimate portrait of a young author full of darkness, complexity and melancholy, longing to reveal himself to the world.
