Summaries and Reviews
Written between the 1920s and 1950s, an anthology of sixty-five short stories explores the complex world of human relationships and human nature, in a diverse collection that includes eleven tales translated into English for the first time. Reprint. 35,000 first printing. NYT. description: Product Description: From the writer who shocked and delighted the world with his novels Lolita, Pale Fire,
and Ada, or Ardor, and so many others, comes a magnificent collection of stories. Written between the 1920s and 1950s, these sixty-five tales--eleven 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 and intoxicating draft of the master's genius, his devious wit, and his ability to turn language into an instrument of ecstasy.
