"This book is a gold mine for instructors who can apply its wealth of concepts, ideas, and sources to classroom teaching. Furthermore, it serves as an important reference book not just for teachers but also for students, scholars, and anyone interested in gaining a thorough understanding in the study of Proust."—Marie-Magdeleine Chirol, Whittier College
