After the New York Times-bestselling adaptation - hailed as a 'Proust for the people' - this centenary edition of the Goncourt-winning In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower unveils the masterpiece beyond the madeleine.

The defining French novel, Proust's In Search of Lost Time is best known for the Combray scenes which appear near the beginning of the first of the book's seven volumes. For many, the discovery of Proust stops here: the sheer scale of the text and its perceived difficulty discouraging them from reading on.

This beautiful second volume of Stephane Heuet's acclaimed graphic novel adaptation invites the reader to go further, accompanying the narrator as he enters adolescence during a summer of infatuation, switching affections and increasing social awareness in the beach resort of Balbec. In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower introduces characters who will go on to dominate future volumes, such as Albertine, the narrator's feelings for whom will be dissected to the minutest degree alongside reflections on the mutability of perception and a biting, witty analysis of social class, snobbery and prejudice.
