Who sanctioned these titles?,
This review is from: In Search of Lost Time: The Way by Swann's: The Way by Swann's Vol 1 (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
The way by Swann's ?!? That isn't even grammatical! As for A love of Swann's, In the shadow of young girls in flower and Finding time again, well, what can you say? Lydia Davis is no doubt an excellent translator and I can only assume pressure was brought to bear to use these catastrophically inept titles, for whatever reason.

S. J. Williams says:
The title is perfectly grammatical whether or not it is the best version of the original. To rate the translation as worthy of one star purely on the basis of the appropriateness of the title is unhelpful and frankly, rather odd.
