Recommends it for: Mad Proustians
Recommended to Wayne by: the cover
A BIG LUSCIOUS book filled with photographs
of people and places associated with You-Know-Who !!!!
Big Print, too!!
You can pick it up any old time,
turn to any page and find something to look at.
Proustians should NOT deprive themselves of this Addiction.

I suspect that the accompanying text will not be of too much interest to Proust 'hands', and is a bit eccentric by any measure. Some of the photos are quite interesting -- period shots of buildings and so forth. But even here, one often can't tell from the caption what is in the photo, both captions and texts being almost 'dreamy' in tone... not an entirely success book.

Been a while since I read this book (which is a kind of coffee table book with a lot of dreamy photographs)and is a good introduction but for Proust fans here is an interesting blog article on him that I ran across today http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog/...
