Item description for Remembrance Of Things Past (Naxos Audio) by Marcel Proust...
Proust's great work, the major French literary statement of the 20th Century, looks back at the old social order while noting the rise of a different way of life. It is extraordinary not only in its length, but for the remarkable observations on the aspirations, the foibles and emotions of life. Once experienced, 'A La Recherche du temps Perdu' and the voice of Proust are never forgotten. This box set contains all 12 volumes, from 'Swann's Way' to 'Time Regained' and includes the biography 'The Life and Works of Proust', written and read by Neville Jason who through his recording of 'Remembrance of Things Past' for Naxos AudioBooks has become the voice of Proust for a generation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Remembrance Of Things Past (Naxos Audio)?
remembrance of things past Aug 8, 2005
This is my all-time favorite book. The reader is excellent; he has a real feel for Proust and his writing, his diction is great--his voice and tone show that he understands the book very well and appreciates it. I was disappointed that the book is abridged, but that's not his fault. The book kept me alert on a recent 9-hour drive, plus return. Since I'm almost 77, I'm extremely grateful for that--and am delighted to have these wonderful CD's.
