In the car I am listening again to Remembrance of Things Past on CD. I have reached CD number 3 of 39. There is so much there about human nature, behaviour and emotions. There is so much beauty in the writing despite its occasional complexity. There is so much humour deriving from the traits of the characters, their class, their idiosyncrasies and downright self-centredness. Take the snobbery of Legrandin who considers snobbery to be an evil sin but whose behaviour epitomises it. Take Aunt Leonie, bedridden, who despises her friends, nearly all of them and especially those who consider her to be as ill as she claims to be and those who consider that she is not as ill as she says she is.This is not to mention Swann and his unfortunate marriage and its social consequences and the narrator’s aunts and their thanks delivered to Swann for his gift of wine so subtly that no one could conceivably notice the understated gratitude. As well as explaining and demonstrating the difference between involuntary and voluntary memory, the book uncovers every aspect of human nature, the strengths and weaknesses of us all as individuals, families or in any form of relationship.

Take your time with this one. It's rich, deep, and has a lot to say. ( )

In Search of Lost Time recounts the experiences of the Narrator (who is never definitively named) while he is growing up, learning about art, participating in society, and falling in love. The novel follows the narrator's recollections of childhood and experiences into adulthood during late 19th century to early 20th century aristocratic France, while reflecting on the loss of time and lack of meaning to the world. The novel had great influence on twentieth-century literature; some writers have sought to emulate it, others to parody it. In the centenary year of the novel's first volume, Edmund White pronounced À la recherche du temps perdu "the most respected novel of the twentieth century."
