“An advantage of not going by too fast is that the world has a chance of becoming more interesting in the process.” ~Alain De Botton, in How Proust Can change Your Life ©1997
How Proust Can change Your Life is a delightful little book that I’d recommend to anyone. You don’t need to have read a word of Marcel Proust’s books to enjoy De Botton’s book. I hadn’t– although it inspired me to obtain a copy of In Search of Lost Time and dive in.
(My initial, very early impression is that Proust will especially appeal to Grateful Dead fans.)
