EDNOTE. Yes, there are also references to Segur's books in Speak, Memory. There is something about her books in a piece of mine on ZEMBLA

ADA contains at least one allusion to Comtesse de Segur's childrens books. Does anyone out there know whether there is a "Burning Barn" scene in any of them?



There is another one in I,8 : "At ten or earlier the child had read -as Van had- les Malheurs de Swann".
