Carlo Rovelli Proust’s reflection on the nature of time is deep and spread over his writing. (Source)

Viktor Mayer-Schönberger A famous masterpiece which is an excruciatingly detailed chronicle of Proust’s life in which every single element and thought is captured and retold. (Source)

Mona Simpson You have a treat in store – and of course there are many more volumes after Swann’s Way! (Source)

Stephen Breyer He has an enormous talent for building characters and bringing a world to life. In his descriptions of his own experiences you see the role of art in life. Art is not separate from life, it is an element of life. We all have the need and the capacity to impose form upon the flux around us. Now, we can impose a better form or we can impose a worse form. We aren’t all geniuses like Proust. Yet we can try to clarify our thoughts and remember the importance of form when we write. Proust shows us that activity helps give meaning to life and it’s helpful to keep in mind as a judge. (Source)
