English term or phrase: proustian shower / paraphrasing
Any idea of what "Proustian shower" means in this context.

talking about books
that it is dog-eared at passages that mean more to my life than my heartbeat; that the mere touch of its pages recalls to me in a Proustian shower my first love, my best dreams.

thanks in advance.
