For our next meeting we will read to p. 353 in Volume V, The Captive & The Fugitive, Modern Library edition (Moncrieff / Kilmartin / Enright).
The reading ends with the phrase:
"...while Morel was the son of that old valet who had introduced me to the lady in pink and enabled me, years after, to identify her as Mme Swann."
The sentence that follows where we will end is:
"At the moment when, the music having come to an end, the guests came to take leave of him, M. de Charlus committed the same error as on their arrival."
A party. A Vinteuil septet. And the stirrings of a war unlike any we have ever seen before...
M. de Charlus vs. Mme Verdurin. Can you believe it?
It makes me think of those old movies pitting King Kong vs. Godzilla.
Everybody stay clear. We can expect entire landscapes to topple.
