The Way by Swann's

Adrian and myself have reached that point which was summed up notoriously by the editor Humblot in 1912, turning down "In Search of Lost Time" with the classic remark:

"... perhaps I am dense, but I just don't understand why a man should take thirty pages to describe how he rolls about in bed before he goes to sleep. It made my head swim! "

Undaunted, we propose to re-engage.
