"The Parisian world of which Proust was a part was also home to such luminaries as Anatole France, Jean Cocteau, and Andre Gide. William C. Carter brings this social world to life while he explores the inner world of Proust's intellectual and artistic development, as well as his most intimate personal experience. Carter examines Proust's passionate attachment to his mother, his deep love for the scenes of his youth, his flirtation with Parisian high society, his complicated sexual desires, and his irrevocable commitment to literary truth - and shows how all of these played out in the making of his great novel."--Jacket.
