Description:
 A discussion of selected titles, some fiction and some nonfiction, in which art plays a major role. The title for September is _Swann In Love_ by Marcel Proust
Swann in Love, a novella contained within the first volume, Swann's Way, of Marcel Proust's masterwork In Search of Lost Time, is an excellent entry point into Proust's work, and also a compelling standalone novel. In its some two hundred pages the portrait of a stormy love affair between the courtesan Odette de Crécy and upper-class socialite Charles Swann gives way to profound meditations on love and jealousy. One of the most profoundly visual works in Western literature, we will discuss the text with reference to the many works of art described therein. We will use the newest, celebrated translation by Lydia Davis.
