About the Author

"Excellent. . . . Apart from a sense that Watt has deftly and with considerable economy tackled all aspects critical to the production of Proust's novel, a particular pleasure to be had is his neat turn of phrase."
-- "Times Literary Supplement"
"Here is an excellent brief life of Proust. . . . Watt is succinct without being perfunctory, scholarly without pedantry, authoritative without being exhaustive. . . . A readable and reliable account of one of the 20th-century's most telling writers."
-- "The Age"
"This is an amazing book. . . . It covers everything, but its economy provides a perspective that lets us see both the forest and the trees. . . . . One may be amazed that this story can pull one in yet again, but in Watt's expert hands it does."
-- "Gay and Lesbian Review"
