24 Hours of "Swann's Way"

A 24-hour-reading of "Swann's Way" (with free champagne and madeleines) in Chelsea was too tempting not to miss, even on a rainy Tuesday night.

An hour's worth of listening led me to conclude that I liked the idea more than the execution, though I still found the reading (not to mention the soft madeleines, with their freshly sprinkled sugar) enjoyable enough. I preferred the lecture-like opener by Adam Gopnik in the beginning, which was more engaging. All in all, it was a few hours well spent.
