Narrator Simon Vance gives these never-before-published stories by Proust charm of their own with his amiable tone and gentle cadence. This short work includes contextual explanations of themes that are seen in later works, including IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME. In "The Awareness of Loving Her," Vance captures the first-person narrator's sense of loss and earnestness as he searches for solace. In "The Mysterious Correspondent," Vance's emotional restraint parallels the caution of Proust's own prose in carefully unfolding the unnamed lover. This audiobook will be particularly interesting to those familiar with Proust's work, as it offers a fascinating glimpse of Proust's experimentation as a young writer. Vance proves to be a masterful narrator of these newly published works. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
