Proust

Marcel Proust (1871–1922), born into a wealthy French family, started his writing career covering the exclusive Parisian drawing rooms. Proust was half-Jewish, which led him to support Alfred Dreyfus during the infamous anti-Semitic affair. Upon the death of his mother, Proust began a voluntary seclusion that led him to write the seven-part work, "In Search of Lost Time," or "Remembrance of Things Past."
