Can we truly know the one we love? In this painfully candid book Marcel Proust looks straight into the green eye of every lover's jealous struggle.
He broods on why we are driven to try possess one another, how jealousy can outlive death, and whether we can ever reclaim those careless days of first love.
There is no greater chronicler of jealousy's darkest fears and destructive suspicions than Proust. Selected from the book In Search of Lost Time by Marcel ProustVINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS.
