“Oh—if I could write like that!”

—Virginia Woolf

“Marcel Proust is the greatest novelist of the 20th century.”

—Graham Greene


MARCEL PROUST (1871-1922) was a French novelist, essayist, and critic best remembered for his towering novel Remembrance of Things Past, of which Swann’s Way was the first volume.

    This edition is a crime.  Seriously.  If you love books, don't buy this.  FInd a used copy from a REAL publisher.
    This book appears to be an OCR scan of another edition or someone dumped a edition for e-readers into a text
    file and printed it.  That someone is selling for their own profit (B&N?  Care
    to chime in?)  The book is typeset using block paragraphs which is hideous.  Strange recurring typos.
    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

    Great Novel

    If there is a better book to read on a desert island then tell me. This book is meant to be read leisurely and slowly. Its prose produces a hypnotic effect with its elaborate detail. You will never see love treated in a more delicate but at the same time more analytical manner. The detail can get a little overwhelming at times but in the end its worth it. this book is not for the casual reader. I would not say it was the greatest book I have ever read but maybe i'll change my mind after I read the other volumes.
