Awarded the 1919 Prix Goncourt as "the best and most imaginative novel of the year," Within a Budding Grove brought Proust international fame. This installment of his multivolume classic combines subtle observations of social manners and attitudes with keen psychological insights to address questions of art and literature as well as existence and mortality. Drawing from the raw material of his own life, the author explores the chasm between childhood innocence and the disillusionments of maturity to create an enduring work of art.
