In The Flame Alphabet, the most maniacally gifted writer of our generation delivers a novel about how far we will go in order to protect our loved one s. Alain de Botton combines two unlikely genres--literary biography and self-h elp manual--in the hilarious and unexpectedly practical How Proust Can Chan ge Your Life. Who would have thought that Marcel Proust, one of the most important writer s of our century, could provide us with such a rich source of insight into how best to live life? Proust understood that the essence and value of life was the sum of its everyday parts. As relevant today as they were at the t urn of the century, Proust's life and work are transformed here into a no-nonsense guide to, among other things, enjoying your vacation, reviving a relationship, achieving original and unclichd articulation, being a goo d host, recognizing love, and understanding why you should never sleep with someone on a first date. It took de Botton to find the inspirational in Pr oust's essays, letters and fiction and, perhaps even more surprising, to draw out a vivid and clarifying portrait of the master from between the lines of his work. Here is Proust as we have never seen or read him before: witty, intelligent, pragmatic. He might well change your life.
