When Proust's adolescent narrator travels from Paris to the sunny seaside town of Balbec he meets an intriguing set of new acquaintances who provide him with both friendship and entertainment.

Scott Moncrieff's translation was rather like swimming through syrup...Kilmartin and Enright have produced a version that wonderfully proves the greatness of this novel, this novelist. The prose that describes Swann's sexual obsession, for instance, is so good you have to stop after many a paragraph, re-read, think over it" -- Melvyn Bragg Guardian "What a genius! Whole pages cascade, like great jazz slaloms" -- Bill Nighy The Times "One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon" The Times "Surely the greatest novelist of the 20th century" Sunday Telegraph "As close to being a definitive English version of the great novel as we are likely to get. This new edition will serve to introduce new generations of readers to what Somerset Maugham rightly described as the greatest novel of our century" -- Allan Massie Scotsman
