 An Evening with Marcel Proust and Stephane Heuet

Illustrator Stephane Heuet's graphic adaptation of Proust's classic was greeted with jeers when it first appeared in 1998, but the initial Buy print run was sold out in three weeks and it has remained a cult classic.
Like de Tocqueville and Doctor Johnson (Samuel not Diane) Proust is often referenced but rarely read by Americans, unless forced to in a lit class, but Arthur Goldhammer, the gold standard of translators, has woven Proust's text with Heuet's images to offer the perfect intro to  Swann's Way.
Join me and Stephane on Tuesday Nov 7 at 7:30 for a buffet dinatoire
(Charcuterie, Paté, Fromage and wine)
Tickets: 40 euros cash or check or PayPal
Space is limited-reserve today

No one should have a bad meal in Paris! Whether a 2-star restaurant or a local bistro there should always be an excellent rapport qualité prix– relationship between price and quality. At my favorites you will be treated as a regular and have a satisfying experience. Just tell them  “Terrance sent you.”
