Considered to be one of the most important works in Western literature, REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST would be a formidable undertaking for many readers. Page-long sentences, three-page paragraphs, and entire chapters in which virtually no "action" takes place (save the passage of time, and sometimes little of that) make it difficult to decipher the course of Proust's reflections. Listening to Neville Jason's nuanced reading of TIME REGAINED--the final volume of Proust's work--helps. His deft pacing and selective emphasis enhance comprehensibility and create an opportunity for deeper understanding. Jason's notes on the author and his work, provided in an enclosed booklet, contribute a revelatory context. T.J.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
