How Proust Can Change Your Life - Alain de Botton - SGD10

Publisher: Vintage Books
Published: 01 June 2004
Format: Paperback 208 pages
ISBN 13: 9780679779155

As relevant today as they were at the turn of the century, Proust’s life and work are transformed here into a no-nonsense guide to, among other things, enjoying your vacation, reviving a relationship, achieving original and uncliched articulation, being a good host, recognizing love, and understanding why you should never sleep with someone on a first date. It took de Botton to find the inspiration in Proust’s essays, letters, and fiction and, perhaps even more surprising, to draw out a vivid and clarifying portrait of the master from between the lines of his work.

Original Price: Approx. SGD20

Condition: Very good.
