Vladimir Nabokov: Novels 1969–1974

Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle | Transparent Things | Look at the Harlequins!
Edited by Bryan Boyd

“There are two ways to read Nabokov (both of them requiring the heeding of his own rule: anything worth reading is worth reading twice). It is quite possible to enjoy his clever plots and his masterly wordplay in English without knowing a single one of his esoteric or abstruse allusions; and it is possible to be infinitely rewarded by knowing, or taking the trouble to find out, just what he means…and means…and means.” — Arkansas Democrat Gazette
