Summary
Written between the 1920s and the 1950s, these sixty-eight tales 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. As a whole, this collection offers an intoxicating draft of the master's genius, his devious wit, and his ability to turn language into an instrument of ecstasy.
