About this book

Nabokov gained international fame with Lolita, a highly erotic and morally disturbing novel. Through its comprehensive study of the amorous and sexual behaviors of Nabokov's characters this book shows how Eros, both as a clown or a pervert, contributes to the poetic excellence of his novels and accounts for the unfolding of the plots.

Reviews

'The book escorts us through [Nabakov's] novels and stories with a mixture of quotation and summary. . . the result is both enjoyable and revelatory - an exhilarating, speeded-up journey through Nabakov's oeuvre' - The Guardian
