9780099362210: In Search of Lost Time: Swann's Way Vol 1 (Vintage Classics)

The Narrator begins by noting, "For a long time, I went to bed early." He comments on the way sleep seems to alter one's surroundings, and the way Habit makes one indifferent to them. He remembers being in his room in the family's country home in Combray, while downstairs his parents entertain their friend Charles Swann, an elegant man of Jewish origin with strong ties to society. Due to Swann's visit, the Narrator is deprived of his mother's goodnight kiss, but he gets her to spend the night reading to him. This memory is the only one he has of Combray, until years later the taste of a madeleine cake dipped in tea inspires a nostalgic incident of involuntary memory.

About the Author:

Marcel Proust (1871-1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental In Search of Lost Time, which was published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927.

Simon Vance, a former BBC Radio presenter and newsreader, is a full-time actor who has appeared on both stage and television. He has recorded over eight hundred audiobooks and has earned five coveted Audie Awards, and he has won fifty-seven Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which has named him a Golden Voice.

Review:

"Audie Award winner Simon Vance elegantly narrates.... [His] handling of the sweeping narrative...is excellent." ---Library Journal Audio Review
