Some reviewer of Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman over at Amazon mentioned In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust, which of course means that I have to look it up. Unfortunately, for my wallet, this is a work of fiction made up of 6 or 7 volumes that the dear sweet, deluded library doesn't have. I'll call them tomorrow to see if they can ship it over from another library in Sweden, but I doubt it.
So I'm getting busy trying to find cheap-ish copies and it's going so so, because I'm once again stuck in that conflicting trench that is translations. I know how utterly pretentious one sounds when talking about translations, but the things is,

Oh how I suffer for the love of reading.
