Thought I’d start with books

Well since we’ve got a long haul ahead of us this is THE TIME to read (or reread) – Proust – Remembrance of things Past…..it’s such a rich and concentrated book and it rewards a long slow reading…

If this is to be a once in a generation event then that is certainly a once in a generation book..

    1. It’s really good apart from the 200 pages towards the end when he goes on and on about the Paris sewer system in great detail – turns out he had a friend who had helped design them…. or where you making a play on our ‘miserable’ time – in which case Misery is also a good choice!

    2. Please do read Les Mis. It is a fantastic book and nothing like the musical. Don’t confound the brilliance of the firmament with the star-shaped footprints of a duck in the mud..

  1. Swans way is accessible and well worth the read. Are you suggesting the who of Remembrance of things Past – co it’s a bit of a BRICK

    1. Well I was thinking that if you are prepared to read around 50 pages a week then you can do the whole lot in one year – which is about how long until this all blows over. I have read it before but think I’ll enjoy it more as an older woman! I agree Swann’s Way is the most accessible part (maybe because it’s the bit with the most lesbian content!)
