Review:

The variety, force and richness of Nabokov's perceptions have not even the palest rival in modern fiction. To read him in full flight is to experience stimulation that is at once intellectual, imaginative and aesthetic, the nearest thing to pure sensual pleasure that prose can offer (Martin Amis)

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

The power of the imagination is not apt soon to find another champion of such vigour (John Updike)

About the Author:

Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) was born in St Petersburg. He wrote his first literary works in Russian, but rose to international prominence as a masterly prose stylist for the novels he composed in English, most famously, Lolita. Between 1923 and 1940 he published novels, short stories, plays, poems and translations and established himself as one of the most outstanding Russian émigré writers.
