A love of Swann is a novel in the novel: the story of a torment that love becomes obsession, illness, ruin. With portrait of a developing company breakup and heartfelt but also ruthless analysis of the motions of the soul and the laws of love.
A love of Swann also has a fold-out pirandelliano, the mystery of nature of every human being, ever-elusive: Odette, appearing to Swann as a woman almost unattainable, is nothing more than an ex-prostitute: once had won the driveways of Nice. So, a seemingly obvious history, becomes the most modern survey instrument about how a man can be damaged for a woman "that was not even my type!".
