Thankfully there's now a new translation available [well, mostly available - the final volumes aren't available in North America due to inane US copyright law], and perhaps even more thankfully, they didn't sell, which means you can find lots of remaindered copies. Mine was $4. w00t.
I do have to wonder, though: they decided to change the title for the US edition. In the UK, it's The Way by Swann's, but it's still the Moncrieff Swann's Way here in the USA. Guess they thought American's would recognize the title, huh? Strange considering that I finally 'get it' with the new title; I always thought he title was a riff on Carlito's Way or something, instead of a short geographic description. Ah well.
Off to bed, to prop myself up with some Proust and a glass of the 2002 Domaine des Blagueurs.
