Inhaltsangabe

For anyone who ever wondered what Marcel Proust had in mind when he wrote the one-and-a-quarter-million words of In Search of Lost Time (while bedridden no less), Alain de Botton has the answer. For, in this stylish, erudite and frequently hilarious book, de Botton dips deeply into Proust’s life and work - his fiction, letters, and conversations – and distils from them that rare self-help manual: one that is actually helpful.

Here, tendered in prose almost as luminous as its subject’s, is advice on cultivating friendships, suffering successfully, recognising love, and understanding why you should never sleep with someone on the first date. And here, too, is a generously perceptive literary biography that suggests that the master is as relevant today as he was in fin de siècle Paris.

    "Very practical philosophy"

    I recently discovered Proust and this book was very informative. And I like Alain de Botton's practical approach to philosophy.

    "Enjoyable "

    This book tells the story of Proust and his literally art, from which the author derives a series of practical philosophical 'lessons' that can be applied to modern dilemmas. In my opinion the title reads a bit misleading. Although,  indeed Proust's literature can provide some lessons, most of these are quite obvious and moundain, at time overly pompous and oversold by the author. Far from life-changing. Nevertheless, listening to this book was a pleasant experience. Some insights and details into Proust's life are really interesting and the author really succeeded in painting an intriguing picture of this peculiar man. I am definitely left with greater appreciation for Proust's work and his life philosophy, from which I undoubtedly  derived some lessons of my own.
