The Proust Questionnaire

In the back pages of Vanity Fair each month, readers find The Proust Questionnaire, a series of questions posed to famous subjects about their lives, thoughts, values and experience. A regular reference to Proust in such a major publication struck me as remarkable, and it was only until I'd read Andre Maurois's Proust: Portrait of a Genius that I understood what this was all about.

The young Marcel was asked to fill out questionnaires at two social events: one when he was 13, another when he was 20. Proust did not invent this party game; he is simply the most extraordinary person to respond to them. источник

Заинтересовалась, услышав об опроснике в передаче с Жюльетт Бинош. Передача (Juliette Binoche: Inside the Actors Studio) большая и интересная; ответы актрисы - здесь.

upd 2013:
Опросник Пруста на вебсайте Vanity Fair (англ.)
