"No one can match White's sensibility or his sympathy for the subject. His criticisms of Proust's work are consistently trenchant and insightful, and he brings to Proust's life the earned, respectful familiarity of a distinguished acolyte." (Publishers Weekly)

Good bio, so-and-so reading
Would you listen to Marcel Proust again? Why?
What was one of the most memorable moments of Marcel Proust?
The bio is a wonderful mix of biographical details and well picked quotes from his works.
What didn’t you like about David Case’s performance?
I didn't like it. He has a pretentious tone, especially at the end of the sentence, which makes his reading slightly annoying and monotonous, thus diminishing the richness of the text.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. It deserves a slower read.

An excellent biography

He was a reader since childhood. And he transformed his own life as the subject of his books, writing it as fiction and creating his proper style of writing.
What other book might you compare Marcel Proust to and why?
James Joyce's Ulysses because both Joyce and Proust books recreate a new form of making literature with te subject of their proper lives, but adding a sense of irony.
What about David Case’s performance did you like?

The narration of the author's childhood.
