My answers to the Marcel Proust questionnaire

I have never heard of Marcel Proust and I had no idea some consider him to be the one of the greatest authors of all times.

I was looking for questions to answer and stumbled upon this article concerning Marcel Proust's questionnaire.

So without any knowledge of Marcel Proust or even the authenticity of this list of questions, here goes it:
