Read full description of the books Les Plaisirs et les jours, suivi de "L'Indifférent":

«Nouvelles mondaines, histoires tendres, vers mélodiques, fragments où la précision du trait s'atténue dans la grâce molle de la phrase, M. Proust a réuni tous les genres et tous les charmes. Aussi les belles dames et les jeunes gens liront avec un plaisir ému un si beau livre.»
Léon Blum

«Il n'est pas simple de louer M. Marcel Proust : son premier livre, ce Traité des Plaisirs et des Jours, qu'il vient de publier, marque une si extrême diversité de talents que l'on peut être embarrassé d'avoir à les noter tous à la fois chez un aussi jeune écrivain. Il le faut cependant. Il faut même avouer que ces dons si variés ne se contrarient point, mais, au contraire, forment un assemblage heureux, brillant et facile.»
Charles Maurras

Ebook Les Plaisirs et les jours, suivi de "L'Indifférent" read Online! French novelist, best known for his 3000 page masterpiece À la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time), a pseudo-autobiographical novel told mostly in a stream-of-consciousness style. Born in the first year of the Third Republic, the young Marcel, like his narrator, was a delicate child from a bourgeois family. He was active in Parisian high society during the 80s and 90s, welcomed in the most fashionable and exclusive salons of his day. However, his position there was also one of an outsider, due to his Jewishness and homosexuality. Towards the end of 1890s Proust began to withdraw more and more from society, and although he was never entirely reclusive, as is sometimes made out, he lapsed more completely into his lifelong tendency to sleep during the day and work at night. He was also plagued with severe asthma, which had troubled him intermittently since childhood, and a terror of his own death, especially in case it should come before his novel had been completed. The first volume, after some difficulty finding a publisher, came out in 1913, and Proust continued to work with an almost inhuman dedication on his masterpiece right up until his death in 1922, at the age of 51.
Today he is widely recognised as one of the greatest authors of the 20th Century, and À la recherche du temps perdu as one of the most dazzling and significant works of literature to be written in modern times.
