Speak, Memory

£9.99

Nabokov’s perspective on his life is like no other conventional autobiography. The author tells his life story in the same mercurial, ironic and tender style as that which he used in his greatest novels.

Description

‘Speak, memory’, said Vladimir Nabokov. And immediately there came flooding back to him a host of enchanting recollections – of his comfortable childhood and adolescence, of his rich, liberal-minded father, his beautiful mother, an army of relations and family hangers-on and of grand old houses in St Petersburg and the surrounding countryside in pre-Revolutionary Russia. Young love, butterflies, tutors and a multitude of other themes thread together to weave an autobiography, which is itself a work of art.
