Author's representation of corrupt males (6,6)


I believe the answer is:

marcel proust

'author's' is the definition.
(Marcel Proust is an example)

'representation of corrupt males' is the wordplay.
'representation of' indicates an anagram (I've seen this in other clues).
'corruptmales' is an anagram of 'MARCEL PROUST'.

(Other definitions for marcel proust that I've seen before include "novelist" , "Corrupt males (anag) -- French author" .)

I've seen this clue in The Everyman puzzle in The Observer.
