Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The acclaimed adaptation continues. Swann is a frequent guest of the high society soirees at the end of the 19th century. When he first encounters Odette de Crecy, he feels no attraction to this frivolous and superficial young woman but time has it otherwise and soon, she becomes an obsession…

Review:

"It took Proust 14 years to complete his loosely autobiographical seven-volume novel, Remembrance of Things Past, but it has taken Heuet more than nine years to finish even a third of this most ambitious project: adapting Proust's entire 3,000 page magnum opus into the comics medium. In this fourth installment, Proust's narrator revisits the past of a dandy named Charles Swann, who struggles to separate his concepts of art, love and ideal beauty as he develops an unlikely obsession with a young socialite in 19th-century Parisian society. Heuet's translation to sequential art retains the work's distinctive period feel and eye for detail, while necessarily paring the florid prose to its least superfluous elements. With a clear line style reminiscent of a slightly more adorned Herg, the art likewise renders the characters with a sometimes disappointing simplicity that contrasts both the intricate period backgrounds and the exhaustive social intricacies they contain. Although a true Proust fan will find it no substitute, Heuet's graphic adaptation is a useful primer for anyone who finds it hard to penetrate the French author's challengingly dense masterpiece."
