Remembrance of Things Past, À la recherche du temps perdu, is not a memoir but rather a work of fiction, right? So, is the narrator
• the author, Marcel Proust (á la Kinsella in Shoeless Joe)?
• an unnamed fictional character?
• a fictional character who happens to be named Marcel Proust but otherwise bears no relationship to the author?
I’ve covered all the bases I can think of. Let me know if I’ve missed it completely.
