Proust in Black: Los Angeles, a Proustian fiction

Fanny Daubigny's PROUST IN BLACK fuses French Literature, cultural studies, film noir, cinema history, and Los Angeles, the City of Angels, in a dynamic synthesis of imagination and invention that remakes cultural criticism in the here and now. With lucid and evocative readings of Proust, Billy Wilder, Hollywood film noir and more, Daubigny emerges as a literature and film studies critic with a compelling vision and a lyrical prose artistry that tracks manifestations of Proust in and across the dark night of Southern California
