"Françoise de Breyves tvekade länge den kvällen innan hon kunde bestämma om hon skulle gå until eventually soarén som gavs av Elisabeth A., until Operan eller until eventually familjen Livrays komedi."

Prousts länge förbisedda novellistik rymmer en intensitet, ett allvar, en poetisk begåvning, en livserfarenhet och en psykologisk skarpblick, som är ytterst sällsynta. Även människorna i den slutna aristokratiska krets, varifrån han hämtar sina motiv, längtar, plågas, njuter, hoppas och förtvivlar, så som människor i alla tider gjort.

Marcel Proust (1871-1922) föddes i Auteuil och växte upp i en förnäm, borgerlig miljö. Han studerade juridik och filosofi, reste en hel del och umgicks i de intellektuella och aristokratiska salongerna i Paris. 1906 tvang honom hans dåliga hälsa att dra sig tillbaka, och slutet av sitt liv ägnade han helt åt den stora romancykeln På spaning efter den tid som flytt.
