"Mary" was Nabokov's first novel, begun in the spring of 1925, and in its heroine lie the shadowy presences of all his heroines to come.

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)
In a Berlin rooming house filled with an assortment of serio-comic Russian émigrés, Lev Ganin, a vigorous young officer poised between his past and his future, relives his first love affair. His memories of Mary are suffused with the freshness of youth and the idyllic ambience of pre-revolutionary Russia. In stark contrast is the decidedly unappealing boarder living in the room next to Ganin's, who, he discovers, is Mary's husband, temporarily separated from her by the Revolution but expecting her imminent arrival from Russia. Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically. - John Updike
