Book Description:
Winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for biography and hailed by critics as both 'monumental' (The Boston Globe) and 'utterly romantic' (New York magazine), Stacy Schiff's V ra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) brings to shimmering life one of the greatest literary love stories of our time. Vladimir Nabokov the migr author of Lolita; Pale Fire; and Speak, Memory wrote his books first for himself, second for his wife, V ra, and third for no one at all.'Without my wife,' he once noted, 'I wouldn't have written a single novel.' Set in prewar Europe and postwar America, spanning much of the century, the story of the Nabokovs' fifty two year marriage reads as vividly as a novel. V ra, both beautiful and brilliant, is its outsized heroine a woman who loves as deeply and intelligently as did the great romantic heroines of Austen and Tolstoy. Stacy Schiff's V ra is a triumph of the biographical form.
