PROUST, M.: Remembrance of Things Past, Vol. 1: Swann's Way (Unabridged)

Remembrance of Things Past is one of the monuments of 20th-century literature. Neville Jason’s widely praised 36-CD abridged version has rightly become an audiobook landmark and now, upon numerous requests, he is recording the whole work unabridged which, when complete, will run for some 140 hours.

Swann’s Way is the first of seven volumes and sets the scene with the narrator’s memories famously provoked by the taste of that little cake, the madeleine, accompanied by a cup of lime-flowered tea. It is an unmatched portrait of fin-de-siècle France.
