Remembrance of Things Past, Part 2: Within a Budding Grove

Front Cover
In this conclusion to this section of Proust's classic, the meaning of 'budding grove' is finally revealed. As the summer on the beach winds down, the adolescent Proust is increasingly smitted by the young beauties his age he passes but never gets to meet...until a well-known painter gives him that very chance. The romantic anticipation, the teasing sensations, the fantasised expectations mixed with the summer sun, the sea breeze... some things never change. In full-colour.
