  •  There's a great film of Ulysses, which there will (5+ / 0-)

    probably never be for Finnegan.  Stick with Proust, it's worth it - the new translations are better but overall the best book is probably the last which hasn't been retranslated yet (but was made into a marvelous French film - Le temps retrouve).  
    Rereading old things can sometimes be more rewarding than reading new ones...but again, only so much time in a lifetime...
