Proust for Dummies Jan 3, 2007
I have tried, on my son's recommendation, to read Rembrance Past, but got stuck; appreciated the language and imagery, but couldn't persevere. Neville Jason reads beautifully and makes the story come to life for me, (though my son says his English accent is blasphemous, surely it should be French). I find it lyrical and very listenable, those long sentences become flowing images. Now I truly appreciate the genius of Proust, his attention to detail, his poetry, his insight into human character... having heard it, I now want to again attempt to read it, so I can absorb and record all my favorite Proustisms. Thank you Neville Jason for your brilliant rendition!
