Jealousy

Vintage Minis


Formats & editions


Vintage Minis bring you the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human – from birth to death and everything in between

Can we truly know the one we love? In this painfully candid book Marcel Proust looks straight into the green eye of every lover’s jealous struggle. He broods on why we are driven to try possess one another, how jealousy can outlive death, and whether we can ever reclaim those careless days of first love. There is no greater chronicler of jealousy’s darkest fears and destructive suspicions than Proust.

Selected from the book In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
