by Marcel Proust - £4.99 Penguin Books Ltd (2008)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780141036731 | ISBN 10: 0141036737
Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them.
Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilisation and helped make us who we are.
In these inspiring essays about why we read, Proust explores all the pleasures and trials we take from books, as well as explaining the beauty of Ruskin and his work, and the joys of losing yourself in literature as a child.
