4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and worthwhile 28 Dec 2012
By Daniel Ford - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, which basically asks a bunch of writers, scholars, and miscellaneous people to choose their favorite passage from A la recherche du temps perdu and comment on it. A few of the choices are boringly obvious, and a few are rather weirdly analyzed, but overall it's a wonderful way to refresh one's knowledge of the greatest novel ever written. My only question: Why didn't they ask ME?

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining glance at Proust 2 Nov 2012
By Stephen Fall - Published on
I really enjoyed this book, and I'm surprised that it hasn't had more attention. The editors asked a couple dozen writers and scholars (they somehow missed me and my splendid 'The 14-Minute Marcel Proust') to select their favorite passages from A la recherche du temps perdu and comment on them. Many of course are predictable, and some of the comments are really just restatements of what Proust wrote, but overall the extended quotes are a wonderful refresher of this greatest of all novels, and the comments are a fascinating study of how differently Proust can affect different people. I am putting the book on my fairly wide shelf devoted to the Search for Lost Time.
