The Madelaine or Madelaines on French Menus.
Marcel Proust (1871 – 1922) is considered by many Frenchmen and women to be France’s finest author. His most famous work was À la Recherche du Temps Perdu, a novel in seven volumes. The novel has been translated into English as In Search of Lost Time and and more recently as Remembrance of Things Past. The novel uses the Madeleines as an example of involuntary memory. The last translation, from 1992, by J.D. Enright is published by Modern Library as a Complete and Unabridged 6-Book Bundle: Remembrance of Things Past, Volumes I-VI.
