Also translated as 'Within a Budding Grove', this is the second volume of In Search of Lost Time. The narrator turns from the childhood reminiscences of Swann's Way to memories of his adolescence. Having gradually become indifferent to Swann's daughter Gilberte, the narrator visits the seaside resort of Balbec with his grandmother and meets a new object of attention–Albertine, 'a girl with brilliant, laughing eyes and plump, matt cheeks.'
