Product Description

Review

He did us all an honour by electing to use, and transform, our language. (Anthony Burgess)

Nabokov can move you to laughter in the way that masters can - to laughter that is near to tears. (The Guardian) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

Glory is the wryly ironic story of Martin Edelweiss, a twnety-two-year-old Russian emigre of no account, who is in love with a girl who refuses to marry him. Convinced that his life is about to be wasted and hoping to impress his love, he embarks on a "perilous, daredevil project"--an illegal attempt to re-enter the Soviet Union, from which he and his mother had fled in 1919. He succeeds--but at a terrible cost. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews

By rob crawford TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a very good novel about the fantasies of youth, i.e. misplaced idealism, mixed with the dangers inherent in the revolutionary upheavals of the early 20C. It is a slice of history, which may interest or may not. As the novel is translated from the original Russian, it lacks the extraordinary narrative texture that the Nab's original English novels exhibit.

Recommended.
