Some Sand with Your Proust?

In USA Today, Jack Murnighan, author of Beowulf on the Beach, shows his readers advisory chops by making the case for the classics as the best beach reading (but, not Proust, actually; Remembrance of Things Past takes too much concentration).

Murnighan will make you want to pack Moby Dick in your beach bag (“one of the funniest books of all time”).

One Response to “Some Sand with Your Proust?”

    :) It’s a coincidence but I actually read Proust on my last holiday. It’s not bad, his melancholic style fits with the laziness of a holiday. It also depends on the holiday style!
