How Proust Can Change Your Life

May 11, 2015

Alain de Botton’s “How Proust Can Change Your Life” – even if it did not change mine, made me think on time, love, friendship, literature and the value of reading.

I find his humorous messages paradoxical – on the one hand saying, “don’t take literature too seriously” and on the other: “literature is a critical tool in everyone’s life”. Whichever way one goes, the book is a worth read.
