Description

On the eve of the controversial, posthumous publication of "The Original of Laura," Michael Maar follows his critically acclaimed "The Two Lolitas" with a revealing new perspective on Vladimir Nabokov's life and work. Hunting down long-hidden clues in the novels, and using the themes that run through Nabokov's fiction to illuminate the life that produced them, Maar constructs a compelling psychological and philosophical portrait. Characteristically graceful and engaging, "Speak, Nabokov" offers a vital new perspective on the twentieth-century master.
