From Vladimir Nabokov, the writer who shocked and delighted the world with his novels Lolita, Pale Fire, and Ada, or Ardor, comes a magnificent collection of stories. Written between the 1920s and the 1950s, these sixty-eight tales -- fourteen of which have been translated into English for the first time - 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. Read as a whole, The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov offers an intoxicating draft of the master's genius, his devious wit, and his ability to turn language into an instrument of ecstasy. This edition includes the newly discovered story "Natasha." "Sumptuous . . . glorious." -- The New York Times "Some of the most nape-tingling prose and devilish inventions in twentieth-century letters. . . . An authentic literary event." -- Time… (més)

    Last Evenings On Earth de Roberto Bolaño (lobotomy42)
    lobotomy42: Although their writing style is quite different, I do feel that some of the moods and impressions captured by both Bolaño and Nabokov in their short stories are strikingly similar. Incidentally, both love to write about writers, and both hate fascists.

"When you laugh, I want to transform the entire world so it will mirror you." Nabokov is a master craftsman...[in progress] ( )

I don't know what happened, though the decrepitude of my iPod might explain it (in the past four years it twice has resurrected itself from the Sad Mac Face). I was listening to a story about White Russian emigrÀ_•À_s in Berlin keeping a GPU agent captive and then all of a sudden I was listening to a love story with Bach and some rain with no jump in elapsed time. I'll pause this for a bit and come back to it later.

I love love love love love love these stories. Gems, each and every one. Praise be to Nabokov ( )

I've read most of the Russian writers, but simply couldn't get into Nabokov. I can tell there is some depth I'm not grasping, but reading shouldn't be as much work as required in every one of his stories. In other cases, I felt like the potential impact fell flat, such as in A Matter of Chance, where the ending came on so quickly that it was anti-climatic compared to the build up up to it. I turned from his earlier stories, to one of his later and most renowned works, The Vane Sisters. That one seemed more developed but still didn't resonate with me. I guess I'm not motivated by stories that have more nuance than dynamic plot or character development. ( )
