Celeste Albaret was Marcel Proust's housekeeper in his last years, when he retreated from the world to devote himself to" In Search of Lost Time." She could imitate his voice to perfection, and Proust himself said to her, "You know everything about me." Her reminiscences of her employer present an intimate picture of the daily life of a great writer who was also a deeply peculiar man, while Madame Albaret herself proves to be a shrewd and engaging companion.
