Top Five Ways To Celebrate Proust

Posted on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by coffeecritic

November 2013 marks the 100 year anniversary of the publication of the first volume of "Remembrance of Things Past" by Marcel Proust. This work, also known as "In Search of Lost Time", holds the Guinness world record as the longest novel ever written. You could celebrate by reading all seven volumes in French (and then, when finished, immediately begin reading it again) as Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer did. Or you could do the Top Five.

5. Watch the movie Time Regained, the final volume of In Search of Lost Time.

4. Listen to French music from the Belle Epoque.

                                              Fleur de Paris

3. Look at the paintings that Proust writes about

1. Eat a madeleine dipped in tea.

If you do decide to start reading In Search of Lost Time, there's a wonderful recent translation of Swann's Way by Lydia Davis and many guides to help you along the way.   --  -- Debra
