This has been my first brush with Proust, and I can certainly see what the fuss is about. This is one of those books where the prose itself is more important than the stories it tells, and where every other paragraph contains some deep insight with the potential to change the way you look at the world. It wasn’t even particularly heavy going, despite the length of some of the paragraphs. Would recommend.
Here, the main themes are rock ‘n’ roll and religious leadership, as epitomised by the two main characters. What’s weird about that is that it ended up reminding me of Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill, King’s son, because the main character in that had similarities to this one, at least at times.
