    Guardian
  • "What a genius! Whole pages cascade, like great jazz slaloms"

    The Times
  • "One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon"

    The Times
  • "It's a novel with zero plot, but the narrator's brilliant analyses of everyday experiences more than make up for it. I've never read a better description of what it feels like to fall asleep"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "The plot is as gripping as any soap opera, the jokes come thick and fast...Proust's is a world entire - so why not take it with you anywhere in the world?"
