Adam Watt is Senior Lecturer in French at Royal Holloway, University of London. He is the author of Reading in Proust's A la recherche: 'le delire de la lecture' (2009), and editor of Le Temps retrouve Eighty Years After/80 ans apres: Critical Essays/Essais critiques (2009).
'Watt creates a successful guidebook for new and hesitant readers of the Recherche ... [He] shares with his reader what, in the end, is the true secret of Proust's novel: for its great length and difficulty, the Recherche holds the promise of being an inexhaustible source of pleasure.' H-France Review 'Watt manages to make a difference with his fresh overview of Proust reception beyond literary scholarship and his focus on highlighting the richness of the Search beyond the well-known stereotypes of madeleine and memory. One of his most commendable achievements in this respect is the attention to the text's linguistic quality.' Modern & Contemporary France
