  • "Sixty-five works by Vladimir Nabokov include his fairy tales, puzzles, vignettes, and melancholic stories written between the 1920s and 1950s, and feature such masterpieces as Lolita, Pale Fire, and Ada."
  • "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. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
