Remembrance of Things Past is one of the monuments of 20th-century literature. Neville Jasons widely praised 36 CD abridged version has rightly become an audiobook landmark and now, after numerous requests, he is recording the whole work unabridged which, when complete, will run for some 140 hours. The Captive is the fifth of seven volumes. The Narrators obsessive love for Albertine makes her virtually a captive in his Paris apartment. He suspects she may be attracted to her own sex.

About the Author:

Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922) was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time). He was born in Auteuil, Paris at the home of his great-uncle, two months after the Treaty of Frankfurt formally ended the Franco-Prussian War. By the age of nine, Proust had his first serious asthma attack, and thereafter he was considered a sickly child. Despite his poor health, he served a year (1889–90) as an enlisted man in the French army, stationed at Coligny Barracks in Orléans, an experience that provided a lengthy episode in The Guermantes' Way, part three of his novel. He was a closeted homosexual, and was one of the first European novelists to feature homosexuality in his novels, openly and at length. He spent the last three years of his life mostly confined to his cork-lined bedroom, sleeping during the day and working at night to complete his novel. He died of pneumonia and a pulmonary abscess in 1922.
