MARCEL PROUST

by | Read by Barbara Rosenblat

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

Seasoned narrator Barbara Rosenblat mars her reading of this biography by making a fetish of her pronunciation of French names. Before each one, she pauses slightly as if to get a running leap at it, pounces on the name theatrically, then pauses slightly. Because MARCEL PROUST naturally contains many French names, such showiness is a regular annoyance. Listeners who can overlook this misplaced drama from an otherwise excellent reader will find the deftly distilled biography a valuable prelude to REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST, Proust's seven-volume masterpiece.
