A Banner Day for Proust Fans

Today's New York Times (2/15/13) has an article on the just-opening exhibit at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City, "Marcel Proust and 'Swann's Way'" 100th Anniversary.  Here is the link: Marcel Proust and 'Swann's Way' at the Morgan.

The exhibit lasts until April 23, and I'll arrange to travel from Foxborough to the Big Apple and report back.  One of the problems appears to be that rien  (nothing) is translated into English.  My French is beaucoup rusty to say the least. 

Here is the link to the Times' review:  Proust, For Those With A Memory

In searching for the online review, I found a wonderful bibliography of all the Times articles on Proust, and particularly one that I had once read and forgotten. Today's bonus link:
Proust essay by Edmund White

Months with little Proust news and then voila!  There is bound to be a lot of hoo-ha over the 100th anniversary, and we shall be in the thick of things.

Happy celebrations.
