It is the writer Gianni Biondillo who today suggests the book to read in the days to be spent at home for the coronavirus emergency. And his choice is “In search of lost time” by Marcel Proust: in fact, what better occasion than a long cloister to face (or reread) a masterpiece of this size? Among the many possible reasons for choosing the «Recherche» at this moment, the first is that in the longest novel in the history of literature «time becomes a work of art». The book is available in Italy in the Einaudi edition (with Natalia Ginzburg, Franco Fortini and Giorgio Caproni among the translators) or in the Mondadori edition (translation by Giovanni Raboni).
Gianni Biondillo’s latest book is “The taste of blood” (Guanda, 2018). If the bookstores in your city do not make home deliveries, all the books can be purchased online or from the websites of the publishing houses.
