    Proust, now a teenager, describes his first separation from his mother, a vacation taken in a high class beach resort in Normandy. Besides the fleeting visions of young girls, he also keenly observes, without acidity but detached amusement, the petty sophistry of the French upper class in its genteel environs, safely removed from the lower ones. An important social question is to know whether the pane of glass will always protect the feast of the marvelous beasts and if the obscure people peering at them through the night will not come and pick them out of their aquarium and eat them.

    Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 72 pages, full color.

    In this conclusion to this section of Proust's classic, we get to understand what he means by "budding grove." As the summer on the beach winds down, the adolescent Proust is increasingly smitten by the young beauties his age he passes by, but never gets to meet... until a well-known painter gives him that very chance. The romantic anticipation, the teasing sensations, the fantasized expectations mixed with the summer sun, the sea breeze... some things never change.

    Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 48 pages, full color.

    Cover price $16.95.
