Why Proust Is Essential Reading for Your Quarantine

Reading Proust in Quarantine

The new episode of our coronavirus crisis podcast features Proust scholar Caroline Weber, author of Proust’s Duchess — a group biography of the women who inspired the Duchesse de Guermantes in Proust’s masterwork In Search of Lost Time. We spoke with Caroline about those women, that novel, its genesis, and why it still makes for great quarantine reading.
