To mark the launch of ongoing book discussions on this website, we dedicate an hour to ideas for neglected classics to read in 2013. Proust scholar Adam Watt makes the case for Swann’s Way, the first volume of In Search of Lost Time, published 100 years ago in 1913, and poet Jamie McKendrick enthuses about The Gold-Rimmed Spectacles, a too little-known 1958 novella by Italian Giorgio Bassani that he has just translated.
