Better than I thought!,

This review is from: A Year of Reading Proust (Paperback)
I have always shied away from reading anything as 'difficult' as Proust so I wasn't exactly thrilled by the prospect of digesting him second hand in this book. But I it up anyway and found it quite fascinating. The author really captures the daze of an avid reader. She is so much under the spell of Proust that she starts to see his wisdom in everything around her (extremely un-Proustian) lifestyle. The novel is a great insight into the working of both writers' minds.
Rose has almost inspired me to give Proust a try...
