Rezension bezieht sich auf: How Proust Can Change Your Life (Vintage International) (Taschenbuch)
I found this book to be original and thought-provoking.
For some reason, it evoked a similar state of mind to that which I experience while reading Iris Murdoch's "Under The Net".
It appears to be a light philosophical treatise, albeit disguised as light literary criticism. As such, it passes the essential test of practicality. I have found myself (mentally) referring back to certain passages when wondering what to do about this or that situation in my own life.
I also found it to be very good fun to read.
Time and re-reading often do strange things to books. So I am not prepared to come to a conclusion about "How Proust Can Change Your Life" until I have read it again in a couple of years' time. But I am already looking forward to doing so.
Meanwhile, thanks Alain de B for a very unusual experience.
