Regular price $17.50 Sale

Modern-day Marie Prevost, a simultaneous translator from Montreal, sets off for Paris to research Proust and escape a failed romance. Sarah Bensimon is a young Parisian Jew who marries into an orthodox family and takes refuge in her kitchen, recreating a kosher version of classic French cuisine. The third woman is Madame Jeanne Proust herself, fragments of whose 'diaries' are recreated with impeccably researched detail - as she worries about Marcel, his late night habit, his diet and his unsuitable friends. This 2004 Vintage Books Paperback is in Very Good condition.
