On Thursday, literary communities around the world will be hosting readings, listening to music, and eating madeleines to celebrate the life and legacy of author Marcel Proust. This month marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of "Swann's Way," the first volume in Proust's 3,000-page, seven-volume novel, "In Search of Lost Time." We speak to longtime Bay Area journalist and Radio Proust host Larry Bensky about how Proust became one of Western literature's most iconic figures.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Larry Bensky, executive producer and host of Radio Proust; and former national affairs correspondent for Pacifica Radio
