The enchanter nabokov review
The Enchanter is a novella written by Vladimir Nabokov in Paris in 1939. As (Volshebnik) it was his last work of fiction written in Russian. Nabokov never published it during his lifetime.The Enchanter is an incredible example of what Nabokov can do in less than 100 pages. The book is a portrait of a pedophile, in his own words. Despite the fact that it is a translation, the genius of the original text is carefully preserved by his son, Dmitri's rendition into English. the enchanter nabokov review

The themes which resonate so powerfully in Lolita are all here in this I've always been a fan of Vladimir Nabokov's writing.
