    Penguin Books Ltd 2012; US$ 19.20

    'Of all my novels this bright brute is the gayest', Nabokov wrote of King, Queen, Knave. Comic, sensual and cerebral, it dramatizes an Oedipal love triangle, a tragi-comedy of husband, wife and lover, through Dreyer the rich businessman, his ripe-lipped ad mercenary wife Martha, and their bespectacled nephew Franz. 'If a resolute Freudian manages... more...

  • Lolitaby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.95

    Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita , Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar... more...

  • Speak, Memoryby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 16.00

    "When he is writing about someone or something he loves, he is irresistible; when he is writing about someone or something he despises, he can manage to enlist one's sympathies, if only momentarily, for the object of his contempt."  -- The New York Review of Books From the Trade Paperback edition. more...

  • The Giftby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 16.00

    The Gift is the last of the novels Nabokov wrote in his native Russian and the crowning achievement of that period in his literary career.  It is also his ode to Russian literature, evoking the works of Pushkin, Gogol, and others in the course of its narrative:  the story of Fyodor Godunov-Cherdyntsev, an impoverished émigré poet living in Berlin,... more...

  • Look at the Harlequins!by Vladimir Nabokov

  • Pninby Vladimir Nabokov

Pnin is a tireless lover who writes to his treacherous Liza: "A genius needs to keep so much in store, and thus cannot offer you the whole of himself as I do." Pnin is the focal point of subtle academic conspiracies he... more...

  • The Luzhin Defenseby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 15.95

    Nabokov's third novel, The Luzhin Defense , is a chilling story of obsession and madness. As a young boy, Luzhin was unattractive,  distracted, withdrawn, sullen--an enigma to his parents and an object of ridicule to his classmates. He takes up chess as a refuge from the anxiety of his everyday life.  His talent is prodigious and he rises to the rank... more...

  • The Eyeby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 15.00

    Nabokov's fourth novel, The Eye is as much a farcical detective story as it is a profoundly refractive tale about the vicissitudes of identities and appearances. Nabokov's protagonist, Smurov, is a lovelorn, excruciatingly self-conscious Russian émigré living in prewar Berlin, who commits suicide after being humiliated by a jealous husband, only... more...

  • Gloryby Vladimir Nabokov

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 15.00

    Glory is the wryly ironic story of Martin Edelweiss, a twenty-two-year-old Russian émigré 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... more...

  • The Real Life of Sebastian Knightby Vladimir Nabokov

    "Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically." -- John Updike The Real Life of Sebastian Knight is a perversely magical literary detective story -- subtle, intricate, leading to a tantalizing climax -- about the mysterious life of a famous writer. Many people knew things about Sebastian Knight as a distinguished novelist,... more...
