Swann's Way - Remembrance of Things Past/In Search of Lost Time - Original TranslationSwann's Way - Remembrance of Things Past/In Search of Lost Time - Original Translation by Marcel Proust

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A beautifully written meditation on the power and perils of memory, full of vivid imagery and great detail about upper class society life in the late 19th century France. It does have a stream-of-consciousness feel to it, more focused on mood, atmosphere, and detail than on plot, which may put off some readers. But it captures the reader in a particular place and time, and has moments of devastating beauty. Highly recommended.
