Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was a French novelist, essayist, and critic, most famous for his autobiographical series of novels, In Search of Lost Time. Stephane Heuet is a French comic artist who is five volumes into his comic adaptation of In Search of Lost Time. He lives in Paris. Arthur Goldhammer has translated more than 125 books from the French, including Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty, and is an Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
"[T]he graphic novel brings an immediacy to the infrastructure of Proust's story, which he set in real neighborhoods boasting recognizable landmarks, all reproduced here in exacting detail.... It makes for an intriguing introduction to the novels, if you've never made the leap-a kind of literary gateway drug-and a tantalizing refresher course, if you have." -- Glen Weldon - Weekend Edition (NPR)
