The greatest Russian emigre writer

"finelytouched"
 
Lolita (Penguin Classics)
Lolita (Penguin Classics)
"Life changing, Will tear you apart. So painful, so powerful. The first time I read this I couldn't put it down for two days. When I went outside there were angels in the treetops"
Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle (Penguin Modern Classics)
Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Nabokov's greatest work: addresses all the thematic strands of earlier work, a catharsis. Constituted of indecribable emotional texture"
Pale Fire (Penguin Modern Classics)
Pale Fire (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A book that will never leave you. A fantastic world more real than our own; a melancholy comedy, a resistance of pathos"
Glory (Twentieth Century Classics)
Glory (Twentieth Century Classics)
"Early, almost unrecognised. Nabokov's 'happiest thing', and I agree. For anyone familiar with the real concept of travelling, I have never read so accurate a novel"
Collected Stories (Penguin Modern Classics)
Collected Stories (Penguin Modern Classics)
"I can't think of anywhere else you can get so much beauty for ten quid. I'm not even going to attempt to describe the sheer volume of genius in these stories spanning Nabokov's life"
Pnin (Penguin Modern Classics)
Pnin (Penguin Modern Classics)
"There is something incredibly haunting and memorable about Pnin; the synchronised dreams of the child not his, Tamara's death, the glass bowl. Nabokov demonstrating how beautiful life really is"
Speak, Memory: An Autobiography Revisited (Penguin Modern Classics)
Speak, Memory: An Autobiography Revisited (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Indespensible ... how all autobiography should be written. Just demonstrates the authors flexibility, his accuracy of perception, a sprawling self analysis."
Bend Sinister (Penguin Modern Classics)
Bend Sinister (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A beautiful book, genuine, heartrending. The whole book is structured around the climactic denoument, a violent, just, powerful release. Beats '1984' any day"
Invitation to a Beheading (Penguin Modern Classics)
Invitation to a Beheading (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Disturbing, Kafkaesque, kineticaly inspired. Similarities can be drawn to Bend Sinister, but contains some disturbing and vivid scenes."
Laughter in the Dark (Penguin Modern Classics)
Laughter in the Dark (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Understated, a superficially simplistic tale, with a powerful undercurrent and complex parallel rays; massively dark and enjoyable"
