The Lemoine Affoir was inspired by the real-life French scandal involving Henri Lemoine, who claimed he could manufacture diamonds from coal and convinced numerous prominent people - including officers of the De Beers diamond mine company and Proust himself - to invest in the scheme.

In a series of pastiches - imitations written in the style of other writers - Proust tells the story of the embarrassment rippling across high society Paris in the wake of the scandal, poking fun at himself (in one story, a character declares that Marcel Proust is so embarrassed hes suicidal) while lampooning some of Frances greatest writers, including Flaubert, Balzac, and Saint-Simon.
