And this version has now been translated into English by the artist and Proust scholar Eric Karpeles under the appropriate title of Lost Time for what time is more lost than months spent in prison? With color plates showing Czapski's sketches and notations, which also miraculously survived the war. In reviewing three books by and about Czapski, Cynthia Haven wrote in the Wall Street Journal: "Once, in his frail final years, a relative found him lying on the floor.
