Description
The author of Proust in Love and Proust: A Life here presents the memoirs of Ernest Forssgren (1894–1970), the young Swede who served as Marcel Proust's last valet, providing new insights into Proust's life and death. William Carter gives us the complete text of the memoir—previously published only in excerpts, in French, with serious omissions and alterations—with an introduction and helpful annotations. Here too are the inscriptions that Proust wrote for Forssgren's copy of Swann's Way; a key telegram that Proust sent Forssgren, better defining the novelist's activities in the final months of his life; Forssgren's "Summary" of the first English biography of Proust, by George D. Painter, which provides many new details about Proust's last trip to Cabourg in 1914 and his attempts at seducing young men of the servant class; and the notes that Forssgren made in his copy of Painter's biography.
