In Swann's Way , the themes of Proust's masterpiece are introduced, and the narrator's childhood in Paris and Combray is recalled, most memorably in the evocation of the famous maternal good-night kiss. The recollection of the narrator's love for Swann's daughter Gilberte leads to an account of Swann's passion for Odette and the rise of the nouveaux riches Verdurins.

For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation to take into account the new definitive French editions of Á la recherché du temps perdu (the final volume of these new editions was published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in 1989).

Considered one of the Top 10 classic novels (my #8) of the western world. The novel is also referred to as "Remembrance of Things Past". Consisting of over 3200 pages, this is the novel that numerous people, like myself, have bought but have never read. But I do hope to tackle it again some day! See my GerryD Lists for other great novels.
