Read full description of the books Sodome et Gomorrhe II:

«Au nombre des habitués de Mme Verdurin, et le plus fidèle de tous, comptait maintenant depuis plusieurs mois M. de Charlus. Régulièrement, trois fois par semaine, les voyageurs qui stationnaient dans les salles d'attente ou sur le quai de Donciéres-Ouest voyaient passer ce gros homme aux cheveux gris, aux moustaches noires, les lèvres rougies d'un fard qui se remarque moins à la fin de la saison que l'été où le grand jour le rendait plus cru et la chaleur à demi liquide. Tout en se dirigeant vers le petit chemin de fer, il ne pouvait s'empêcher (seulement par habitude de connaisseur, puisque maintenant il avait un sentiment qui le rendait chaste ou du moins, la plupart du temps, fidèle) de jeter sur les hommes de peine, les militaires, les jeunes gens en costume de tennis, un regard furtif, à la fois inquisitorial et timoré, après lequel il baissait aussitôt ses paupières sur ses yeux presques clos avec l'onction d'un ecclésiastique en train de dire son chapelet, avec la réserve d'une épouse vouée à son unique amour ou d'une jeune fille bien élevée.»

Read information about the author

Ebook Sodome et Gomorrhe II read Online! French novelist, best known for his 3000 page masterpiece À la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time), a pseudo-autobiographical novel told mostly in a stream-of-consciousness style. Born in the first year of the Third Republic, the young Marcel, like his narrator, was a delicate child from a bourgeois family. He was active in Parisian high society during the 80s and 90s, welcomed in the most fashionable and exclusive salons of his day. However, his position there was also one of an outsider, due to his Jewishness and homosexuality. Towards the end of 1890s Proust began to withdraw more and more from society, and although he was never entirely reclusive, as is sometimes made out, he lapsed more completely into his lifelong tendency to sleep during the day and work at night. He was also plagued with severe asthma, which had troubled him intermittently since childhood, and a terror of his own death, especially in case it should come before his novel had been completed. The first volume, after some difficulty finding a publisher, came out in 1913, and Proust continued to work with an almost inhuman dedication on his masterpiece right up until his death in 1922, at the age of 51.
Today he is widely recognised as one of the greatest authors of the 20th Century, and À la recherche du temps perdu as one of the most dazzling and significant works of literature to be written in modern times.
