Description

THE ACCLAIMED FULLY REVISED EDITION OF THE SCOTT MONCRIEFF AND KILMARTIN TRANSLATION

In Sodom and Gomorrah Proust’s narrator not only depicts the class tensions of a changing France at the beginning of the twentieth century but also exposes the decadence of aristocratic Parisian society and muses upon the subjects of homosexuality and sexual jealousy.

Publisher Review

A giant miniature, full of images, of superimposed gardens, of games conducted between space and time -- Jean Cocteau One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon * The Times * Proust isn't just the most profound of novelists, but the most entertaining, too * Independent * The way he replicates the workings of the mind changed the art of novel-writing forever...his style is extraordinary, enveloping, captivating * Guardian *
