Publisher's Summary

Swann in Love is the continuation of Swann's Way, the first part of Marcel Proust's monumental seven volume Remembrance of Things Past. It tells the story of man-about-town Charles Swann's passionate, tormented love affair with the courtesan Odette de Crecy, and of its surprising outcome. Set in the degenerate demi-monde of 19th century Paris as well as in the fashionable drawing rooms of the aristocracy, this new audiobook vividly brings to life the descriptive genius of the original novel.

Audible Editor Reviews

Reading Proust's great work, Remembrance of Things Past, may be daunting, but listening - at least to the first part of the seven-section novel - is a riveting experience, an insightful, often funny, poetical exploration of character, place, emotion and idea. In this section, Neville Jason spins out Charles Swann's tale of hapless love and jealousy. Jason is a master at characterizing the multitude of voices and guides us seamlessly through time. After such a short, yet exquisite, sampling of this classic, we are tantalized and long to continue with the narrator.
