âe~What a marvellous book this is . . . de Botton dissects what [Proust] had to say about friendship, reading, looking carefully, paying attention taking your time, being alive and adds his own delicious commentary. The result is an intoxicating as it is wise, amusing as well as stimulating, and presented in so fresh a fashion as to be unique . . . I could not stop, and now much start all over again.âe(tm) Brian Masters, Mail on Sunday âe~De Botton not only has a complete understanding of Proustâe(tm)s life . . . but what is particularly charming about this small, readable book is its tongue-in-cheek benignity, its lightly held erudition and its generous way of lending itself to what is not only the greatest book of the century but also the darkest and the most eccentricâe(tm) Edmund White, Observer âe~It contains more human interest and play of fancy than most fiction . . . de Botton, in emphasizing Proustâe(tm)s healing, advisory aspects, does us the service of rereading him on our behalf, providing of that vast sacred lake a sweet and lucid distillation.âe(tm) John Updike, New Yorker âe~De Bottonâe(tm)s little book is so charming, amusing and sensible that it may even itself change your life.âe(tm) Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph âe~This engaging book is one of the most entertaining pieces of literary criticism I have read in a long while.âe(tm) Sunday Telegraph âe~A very enjoyable bookâe(tm) Sebastian Faulks
