Remembrance of Things Past is one of the monuments of 20th-century literature. Neville Jason’s widely praised 36-CD abridged version has rightly become an audiobook landmark and now, upon numerous requests, he is recording the whole work unabridged which, when complete, will run for some 140 hours.

Swann’s Way is the first of seven volumes and sets the scene with the narrator’s memories famously provoked by the taste of that little cake, the madeleine, accompanied by a cup of lime-flowered tea. It is an unmatched portrait of fin-de-siècle France.


   




Review By Gerald Fenech,Malta News Online,May 2012

Neville Jason has taken on the titanic task of reading the whole unabridged eight volumes for Naxos Audiobooks in a new and updated translation which simply means that no other reader can get close to him in his subtle and unique understanding of Proust.

Jason’s reading is assured and full of style and a classic poise which makes him the ideal Proust reader. One waits with trepidation and eager anticipation for the next volumes in this wonderful series. © 2012 Malta News Online Read complete review



Review By Tom Cunliffe,A Common Reader,February 2012

the book is fascinating…I was pleasantly surprise to find myself totally absorbed…Jason’s voice is exactly right for Proust…

What a lovely thing to own…a rich resource for some point in the future when I have more time on my hands. © 2012 A Common Reader Read complete review
