"Madame Proust - A Biography"

On the occasion of the publication in America of "Madame Proust - A Biography", The Village Voice bookshop invite you to meet the author Evelyne Bloch-Dano and Alice Kaplan, the translator, on THURSDAY DECEMBER 13th at 7 pm

"Using previously unknown documents, Evelyne Bloch-Dano has made a first-rate contribution to our understanding of Marcel Proust's mother, her Jewish ancestors, and her family's social environment."
Jean-Yves Tadié, author of "Marcel Proust: A life"

"[Jeanne Proust] passed on to Marcel her own sharp tongue, her spirit of rebellion, a deep passion for reading, a brave and outspoken position on the Dreyfus affair, and the spirit of life itself. As Bloch-Dano's engaging biography makes clear, there can be no denying that Marcel and Jeanne lived a ménage as twosome: but the nest that she made for her little canary gave wings to 'Marcel' the wolf, the writer."
Carol Mavor, author of "Reading Boyish:J.M.Barrie, Roland Barthes, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Marcel Proust and D.W Winnicott".
