Stephane Heuet has set out to illustrate all of Marcel Proustís In Search of Lost Time and begins with Swann's Way. Translated from its original French, this is a unique but still intense dive into the work of Proust. Heavy duty.

The story is a love affair between Odette de Crecy and Charles Swann, stirred up through the bite of a tea-dipped madeleine. This is an intricate story treated with a cinematic lens. The illustrations and graphic novel form breathe life into the prose.

Graphic novel translations of classic literature seems to be a growing genre, and as with any translation of classic literature, there are those who are faithful to the original and those who twist the story into a new direction.

Swann's Way remains traditional, a comfortable entry for readers who may be looking for that entry into a graphic novel adaptation of one of their favorites.
