The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov (Playaway Adult Fiction)

by

The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov (Playaway Adult Fiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From Vladimir Nabokov, the writer who shocked and delighted the world with his novels Lolita, Pale Fire, and Ada, or Ardor, comes a magnificent collection of stories. Written between the 1920s and the 1950s, these sixty-eight tales - fourteen of which have been translated into English for the first time - display all the shades of Nabokov's imagination. They range from sprightly fables to bittersweet tales of loss, from claustrophobic exercises in horror to a connoisseur's samplings of the table of human folly. Read as a whole, The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov offers an intoxicating draft of the master's genius, his devious wit, and his ability to turn language into an instrument of ecstasy. This edition includes the newly discovered story "Natasha." "Sumptuous . . . glorious." - The New York Times "Some of the most nape-tingling prose and devilish inventions in twentieth-century letters. . . . An authentic literary event." - Time
