"In Search of Lost Time"

French writer Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was desperate when he got a letter in which well-known publisher Mark Humboldt refuses to publish his life's work, a novel "In Search of Lost Time."

"My dear friend," the publisher’s letter began, "maybe I am completely without a brain, but I do not see why anyone would be interested to read thirty pages just to find out how the narrator rolls in bed because he can not sleep!"

Gallimard” later published the novel and this is one of the most celebrated works of French literature.
