Let’s Read about Perfumes and Marcel Proust

''Perfume is that last and best reserve of the past, the one which when all out tears have run dry, can make us cry again!”

— Marcel Proust


Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel ''À la recherche du temps perdu'', published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927.

He is considered by critics and writers to be one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.


The novel touches on themes such as loss of time, lack of meaning, memory and social changes happening in France at time. It was published in France between the years of 1912 and 1927.


Since its publication, In Search of Lost Time, has awed critics and inspired several authors like Virginia Woolf and Vladimir Nabokov.


I hope that I have inspired you to pick up a copy of In ''Search of Lost Time''! I definitely plan to go back to it soon and try again.
