Found a copy at The Strand for a mere $9. Lovely.

Precursor to À la recherche du temps perdu, which yet deals with the subject of our memory and the imperative of reflection, although this novel remained a fragment.

If you love fine quality writing at the highest level, in French, as a warm-up before you try reading A la recherche du temps perdu, this would be a good place to start. It is not as long. Most people agree that since this was reconstructed from manuscripts after the death of the author, it is definitely not in the same league as the finished masterpiece that has become so famous. But still this work in 3 volumes is worth it to try out.
I read it about 20 years ago and would like to go back and try it again.
