12/30/2011 "I'm 8 per cent of the way according to my Kindle. Swann is in love. Actually, it's much funnier than I remember when I read Swann's Way in 1971 or so. Slow going, tho." 1 comment

Seiji Wow, this was Joe's retirement goal, but he switched to history and playing the piano. Am I supposed to comment on the book itself?!

message 2: by Joanne (new) - added it

Joanne Gass Nah. i decided to try it again (read Swann's Way in June Pollak's class in 1971). The impetus came from a very good non-fiction work--The Hare with Amber Eyes--, which I read last month. Swann was modeled after a rich man named Efruzzi who collected netsuke, among many other things. We'll see how long it takes to get through it, if I do. So far, it's much funnier than I remembered.

Seiji And you have quite a few books currently on your coffee table.
Oh, and I just sent you another message asking about a similar site for movies.
