Fred rated it it was amazing Sep 03, There was a problem adding your email address. I would likely start with santeul other then this work. This is Proust’s first attempt to tell the story of his own life and to mirror the life around him.

‘Jean Santeuil’ by Marcel Proust (Part 1) | Intermittencies of the Mind

The first volume, after some difficulty finding a publisher, came out inand Proust continued to work with an almost inhuman dedication on his masterpiece right up until his death inat the age of This book was my first wanteuil to Marcel Proust.


Great commentary on this book Jonathan. An idea I liked: JS is easier to read though. One of my favourite epsiodes in ISOLT is when the narrator sobs santeuli having to leave the hawthorn blossom in Combray as he has to return to Paris.
