How Proust Can Change Your Life

3.76 (15,876 ratings by Goodreads)


By (author): Alain de Botton

With an introduction by comedian and novelist David Baddiel

A novel in seven volumes, Marcel Prousts In Search of Lost Time is considered a major literary work of the twentieth century. And even more crucially, one that you should have read by now. However, as one of its most distinguishing features is its staggering length, many of us feel intimidated and perhaps, even, fatigued at the thought of diving in. Alain de Bottons hilarious and unexpected Proustian manual, is then, the perfect antidote to this problem.

In How Proust Can Change Your Life, de Botton masterfully distils what Proust says about friendship, reading, being alive and taking your time, and mixes it with his own, no less nourishing commentary. As de Botton rereads Proust for our collective benefit, we see the continued relevance of his work and the rich and varied insights he can offer us, from how to reinvigorate your relationship to being a good host. This is Proust as youve never seen him before. He may even change your life.
