The new Muriel Spark offerings at the New Directions website drew me over there yesterday where I saw this lust-worthy offering that is sadly not available until June 25. ND provides the briefest of summaries:
"The Albertine Workout contains fifty-nine paragraphs, with appendices, summarizing Anne Carson’s research on Albertine, the principal love interest of Marcel in Proust’s Á la recherche du temps perdu."
Well. That should be enough. But it is not. So I went looking about some more and found this Anne Carson reading at The Center for Fiction.
