The Fugitive, volumne six of A la recherche de temps perdu of Marcel Proust finds its narrator living outside of marriage with Albertine, a woman whose preferences might be described as variable. He examines his life with her, his relations with others, where he fits in the grand scheme of things and how others might interpret his actions. It leads, in a word, to confusion, but it might just be the confusion of a modern human being, alone with his past in a life whose only passing purpose is that ascribed to it by its author.
