Ebay replacement for Volume 5 of About Time turns out to actually be Volume 4!!!!

And as far as I can tell it is my mistake not the vendor's. So annoying!!!!

You might see if someone like pikelet needed it. Also, surely your Tom Baker icon would've been more appropriate here...?

I finished volume 4 of Lost Time this weekend - are we talking about the same book? Because I have a red hot copy of Sodom and Gomorrah just WAITING for me and I'm very excited - I paid more and got a nicer edition this time.

Sadly, not the same thing. About Time is a projected six-volume history of Doctor Who; you're talking, I guess, about Proust's In Search of Lost Time. Both fine works, but rather different.

Was it not vol 3, the Guermantes Way, that you just finished? Like you I'm bracing myself to get into Sodom and Gomorrah.

Isn't that volume four? I thought The Way By Swann ... okay, I read somewhere that there were TWO volumes in the first book! Nevermind. It's all very confusing.

It will be fun to keep up with you on Gomorrah ... if I finish the Alain de Bottom book any time soon I'll mail it on to you, as it really doesn't seem to have much in the way of spoilers but more about Proust's life in general.
