Welcome to Fiction Daily
We love to read. Gossip magazines, novels, non-fiction and even poetry. We read online, too. It has always been a dream of mine to post about fiction, and this blog takes the name of that dream: Fiction Daily.
Nobody has read all of Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, right? I know one person who dedicated a full year to reading all seven volumes, from Swann's Way to Finding Time Again. He tells me it was a life-changing experience, dwelling in another world while continuing to function in this one.
I read the first part of the first volume, Combray, and it took forever, having to read and re-read over and again to figure out what was going on. Proust writes with a dreamy, rambling style that escorts you deep into his mind, his world, and it takes a while to get there, but once there, I found a remarkable glimpse at what makes us human.
