About the Author

Readers of Vladimir Nabokov's novels might be slightly uncomfortable with them, were they not so awe-inspiring. Nabokov (1899-1977) had a penchant for writing about the tragic and the taboo in his books, especially the still-controversial Lolita. But his erudite, inventive approach to writing — buttressed by his formidable academic and cultural intellect — made him a literary legend.
