A literary legend: The life and legacy of Marcel Proust

France is marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of famed novelist Marcel Proust. He penned much of his greatest work, the seven-volume saga "In Search of Lost Time", along the shores of Cabourg, in Normandy. Under the fictional name of Balbec, the town was put on the literary map. To find out more about Cabourg's Proustian legacy, and Proust's short but hugely influential career, we take you to The Villa of Time Found, whose immersive exhibit takes visitors on a sensory trip back in time.
