Editorial Reviews

Catherine Gide
. . . the composition of the book, extremely skillful, should arouse the interest of amateurs as well as specialists. . . . One takes a lot of interest and pleasure in reading your book.
French Review
Though targeting a general readership, the book, with its detailed analyses of these fascinating interactions, its organization (basically chronological but with certain thematic highlights), and its notes and index, should appeal to Gide or Proust scholars as well.
