Glimpsing the possibility of adding to his collection, Guerin stumbles into a tense and tangled relationship with the novelists family who, embarrassed by Prousts writings and his homosexuality, are in the process of destroying the mountain of notebooks, letters and manuscripts they had inherited. Little by little, over decades, Guerin acquires Marcels remaining personal effects, including - eventually - the relic he had come to covet more than any other: the moth-eaten otter-lined overcoat Proust had worn every day and used as a blanket every night while writing in bed.

Like the novelists second skin, this coat was as close as Guerin could ever come to touching Proust himself: it was the jewel of his collection.
