What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, Uncommon, With Dustwrapper

The scarce first UK edition, first impression of this work.

In the publisher's original price unclipped dust wrapper.

Edited by Nabokov's son, Dmitri, alongside Matthew J. Bruccoli.

Nabokov's letters are chronologically arranged, and discuss his work and personal life. They cover a period during which 'Lolita', 'Pale Fire' and 'Ada or Ardor' were published, and include his views on literature and his own work. 

Illustrated with six double sided photographic plates. Collated, complete.

From the library of Hungarian-Canadian author Stephen Vizinczey, best known for his 'In Praise of Older Women', and 'An Innocent Millionaire'. His writing was praised by the likes of Graham Greene and Anthony Burgess, describing his fiction as social epics which breathe hope in a corrupt world.
