Audible Editor Reviews

In the second part of the fourth volume in Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, the Narrator has returned to Balbec and reunited with his lover Albertine, though his suspicions of her lesbianism cause an intense jealousy and dissatisfaction within him. Aside from being a meditation on sexual desire and the destructiveness of envy, Proust also takes a withering look at social mores in Paris, critical of both aristocratic decadence and the moribund bourgeoisie. Neville Jason's melodious and dignified style seems to amplify the high distinction of Proust's classic, one of the more narratively focused volumes in Proust's novel.
