About this Recording

PROUST, M.: Remembrance of Things Past, Vol. 1: Swann's Way: Parts II and III (Abridged)

Swann in Love is the continuation of Swann’s Way, the first part of Marcel Proust’s monumental cycle Remembrance of Things Past. It tells the story of man-about-town Charles Swann’s passionate, tormented love affair with the courtesan Odette de Crécy, and of its surprising outcome. Set in the degenerate demi-monde of nineteenth-century Paris as well as in the fashionable drawingrooms of the aristocracy, this new audiobook vividly brings to life the descriptive genius of the original novel.
