Having -finally- finished reading all eight volumes of Alexandre Dumas' Celebrated Crimes, I've begun reading another multi-volume classic, In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust.

The seven volumes of are available at Project Gutenberg Australia. At the time the work was originally translated into English, the title was translated as Remembrance of Things Past. The title In Search of Lost Time, a literal rendering of the French (À la recherche du temps perdu), has gained usage since D. J. Enright adopted it for his revised translation published in 1992.

I am currently on the first volume, Swann's Way.
