"It was Nabokov's gift to bring paradise wherever he alighted." --John Updike, The New York Review of Books

Novelist, poet, critic, translator, and, above all, a peerless imaginer, Vladimir Nabokov was arguably the most dazzling prose stylist of the twentieth century. In novels like Lolita , Pale Fire , and Ada, or Ardor , he turned language into an instrument of ecstasy.

Vintage Nabokov includes sections 1-10 of his most famous and controversial novel, Lolita ; the stories "The Return of Chorb," "The Aurelian," "A Forgotten Poet," "Time and Ebb," "Signs and Symbols," "The Vane Sisters," and "Lance"; and chapter 12 from his memoir Speak, Memory .
