Swann's WayBook - 1992 | Modern Library ed
In the overture to Swann's Way , the themes of the whole of In Search of Lost Time are introduced, and the narrator's childhood in Paris and Combray is recalled, mostnbsp;nbsp;memorably in the evocation of the famous maternal good-night kiss. Thenbsp;nbsp;recollection of the narrator's love for Swann's daughter Gilberte leads to an accountnbsp;nbsp;of Swann's passion for Odette and the rise of the nouveaux riches Verdurins.
The final volume of a new, definitive text of A la recherche du temps perdu was published by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade in 1989. For this authoritative English-language edition, D. J. Enright has revised the late Terence Kilmartin's acclaimed reworking of C. K. Scott Moncrieff's translation to take into account the new French editions.

“The places we have known do not belong solely to the world of space in which we situate them for our greater convenience. They were only a thin slice among contiguous impressions which formed our life at that time; the memory of a certain image is but regret for a certain moment; and houses, roads, avenues are as fleeting, alas, as the years.”
