"Gilles Lantier is thirty-five, attractive, with a beautiful mistress and a job in Paris as a journalist. He seems to have all that life can offer. But suddenly he is overwhelmed by despair. Nothing seems worth while. In panic at his boredom, and hating Eloïse, his model girlfriend, he flees for some peace to his sister and her dull husband in the provinces. Here he meets Nathalie, the wife of a country lawyer. She falls deeply in love with him, a passion to which he soon responds. But back in Paris her innate goodness contrasts oddly with the frivolity of Gilles's life. Soon it seems as if their relationships is doomed, as if their happiness is a mere gleam of sunlight on cold water"--Page 4 of cover

In search of lost time by Marcel Proust( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years have passed since Marcel Proust published the first volume of what was to become a seven-volume masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. In the intervening century his famously compelling novel has never been out of print and has been translated into dozens of languages. English-language readers were fortunate to have an early and extraordinarily fine translation of the novel from Charles Kenneth Scott Moncrieff. With the passage of time, however, the need for corrections, revisions, and annotations to the Scott Montcrieff translation has become apparent. Esteemed Proust scholar William C. Carter celebrates the publication centennial of Swann{u2019}s Way with a new, more accurate and illuminating edition of the first volume of In Search of Lost Time. Carter corrects previous translating missteps to bring readers closer to Proust{u2019}s intentions while also providing enlightening notes to clarify biographical, historical, and social contexts. Presented in a reader-friendly format alongside the text, these annotations will enrich and deepen the experience of Proust{u2019}s novel, immersing readers in the world of an unsurpassed literary genius."--Publisher's description

Don Celestino is old and bitter and afraid. In exile from his native Spain for more than twenty years, he lives with his daughter in Paris, but in his mind he is still fighting the Spanish Civil War. Don Celestino's daughter has had enough. She decides to return to Spain, and reluctantly, helplessly, he tags along. Now he foresees a last heroic confrontation with his enemies; he wonders whether he will be worthy. Instead he encounters a new commercialized Spain that has no time for the past, much less for him. Or so it seems. One of the great characters of twentieth-century fiction, a lost soul who is, in spite of everything, the essence of whatever honor may be, Don Celestino is an unparalleled modern reincarnation of the spirit of Don Quixote and a triumph of Henry de Montherlant's caustic and compassionate art
