Most famous for his seminal In Search of Lost Time, the novelist and critic Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was a forerunner of Modernism and one of the twentieth century's most important literary figures.

Pleasures and Days is rich in language and detail, and by turns satirical and moving, Proust's stories - presented here in Andrew Brown's nuanced translation, the only edition currently in print - are layered with imagery and feeling and foreshadow the themes and psychological atmosphere of his later masterpiece.

Proust's only other work of fiction published in his lifetime apart from the monumental novel cycle In Search of Lost Time, Pleasures and Days takes the reader on a journey through the high-society circles of fin-de-siecle Paris, presenting the lives, loves and attitudes of a host of unforgettable characters.
