Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is not really a review of the book, but rather a complaint about the atrocious proofreading or, more properly, lack of proofreading of the Kindle edition. I could put up with a few typos in an otherwise well-edited text, but this edition contains literally dozens of misspellings.data.adtags.pro/a-life-less-lonely.php

I suspect that no one actually read the Kindle edition before it was posted for downloading; had they done so, they would have discovered that the first chapter alone contains one misspelled word after another, both in the English-language text itself and in the long, numerous quotations in French from Proust's work. It is outrageous, and thoroughly insulting to readers, that such a sloppy product should be offered for sale by Amazon.
Were it not for the quality of the book itself, and Dr. Carter's preeminence in the field of Proust studies, I would have demanded my money back days ago.

In Remembrance of Things Past , Proust describes how the machines of transportation and communication transformed fashion, social mores, time-space perception, and the understanding of the laws of nature. Concentrating on the motif of speed, Carter establishes the centrality of the modern world to the novel's main themes and produces a far- reaching synthesis that demonstrates the work's profound structural unity.
