The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov

'“A brilliant examination that adds to the understanding of an inspiring and enigmatic life.” —Kirkus Reviews “A penetrating analysis certain to compel a major reassessment of the Nabokov canon.” —Booklist “The most remarkable and insightful book on Vladimir Nabokov in many years. Pitzer brilliantly manages to unlock a secret door in the oeuvre of the often misunderstood Mandarin. A must for even non-Nabokovians.” —Michael Maar, author of Speak, Nabokov and The Two Lolitas “Andrea Pitzer has given students of Nabokov a startling gift: a fundamentally new way to read one of the English language’s preeminent prose wizards. A feat of fascinating literary detective work.” —Christopher Goffard, author of You Will See Fire and Snitch Jacket “This book manages the impressive feat of being at once a wide-ranging introduction to Nabokov’s life and work as well as a game-changer for those readers who thought they knew his writing cold.” —Steve Belletto, author of No Accident, Comrade: Chance and Design in Cold War American Narratives'
