      marcel proust brothel letter to grand-pere

    • Tracey J. Evans

      Marcel Proust was undoubtedly a gifted author. [...] he was also, it is said, obsessed with masturbation. [...] And so, in May of 1888, in an effort to cure him of this "problem" having recently walked in on him "on the job," Dr. Proust gave his 16-year-old son 10 francs and sent him off to a local brothel. As evidenced by the following letter to his grandfather, [...] the visit didn't go to plan. | Caption at link: Letters of Note http://www.lettersofnote.com/2013/08/my-dear-little-grandfather.html?m=1
