"A rare and wonderfully written book of literary detection that is heartbreaking as well as thrilling." /-Michael Ondaatje, author of In the tradition of Simon Winchester's Lorenza Foschini-the charming, endlessly intriguing story of a collector's obsessive search for the personal effects of legendary author Marcel Proust. This fascinating true story introduces readers to a truly delightful character-Jacques GuErin, owner of a perfume company in France-and enthralls them with his relentless lifelong pursuit of all things Proustian, even the author's most mundane possessions.
