Have you read Marcel Proust? Do you just pretend to have read him? Are you afraid to even crack open In Search of Lost Time? No need to panic. Barnard’s Caroline Weber, a Proust expert, introduces us to the man, his milieu, his era and his writing.
Caroline Weber is professor of French and Comparative Literature at Barnard College, Columbia University; she has also taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton. She’s the author of Proust’s Duchess, Queen of Fashion: What Marie-Antoinette Wore to the Revolution and has written for The New York Times, London Review of Books and many other publications. She’s currently a Guggenheim Fellow and a fellow at the NYPL Cullman Center for Scholars & Writers. She lives in New York City.
