Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time is considered by many to be the greatest novel of the twentieth century. The fourth volume, Sodom and Gomorrah, is notable for its pioneering discussion of homosexuality. After publication, Colette wrote Proust: “No one has written pages such as these on homosexuals, no one!” This edition is edited and annotated by Proust scholar William C. Carter, who endeavors to bring the classic C. K. Scott Moncrieff translation closer to the spirit and style of the original.

Marcel Proust (1871–1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for À la Recherche du Temps Perdu, published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. William C. Carter is Distinguished Professor of French Emeritus at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“Proust is not an easy author to read. Carter’s revised translation makes the text much more accessible to a contemporary reader.”—Pascal Ifri, Washington University in St. Louis

“Carter has pared down the annotations and made them crystal clear. This edition is both masterful in its content and pleasing in its form.”—David Ellison, author of A Reader's Guide to Proust's In Search of Lost Time

Sodom and Gomorrah introduces key signposts on the road through the Recherche. And as readers we could not ask for a more informed and eloquent guide to this volume’s new realms than William Carter.”—Harold Augenbraum, Editor, Collected Poems of Marcel Proust
