PROUST, MARCEL (1871-1922).

French novelist; considered one of the great novelists of all time. Deeply influenced by his mother—his one Jewish parent—he grew up among the upper class of French society of his time. Confined to his house by illness, he embarked on writing a multi-volume novel called In Search of Lost Time, in which he recalls his childhood in great detail and with deep psychological insight, recreating an entire era.
