King, queen, knave : a novel by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

36 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 2,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel is the story of Dreyer, a wealthy and boisterous proprietor of a men's clothing emporium store. Ruddy, self-satisfied, and thoroughly masculine, he is perfectly repugnant to his exquisite but cold middle-class wife Martha. Attracted to his money but repelled by his oblivious passion, she longs for their nephew instead, the myopic Franz. Newly arrived in Berlin, Franz soon repays his uncle's condescension in his aunt's bed

The enchanter by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

26 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nabokov described this novella, written in Paris in 1939 but only published twenty years later, as 'the first little throb of Lolita'. The plot is similar: a middle-aged man wedding an unattractive widow in order to indulge his paedophilic obsession with her daughter. However, The Enchanter has an utterly different atmosphere, as time, place and even names remain a mystery. Nabokov transforms his protagonist's attempts to lull his twelve-year-old step-daughter into a state of 'enchantment' into a graceful, chilling fairytale

In an unnamed dream country, the young man Cincinnatus C. is condemned to death by beheading for "gnostical turpitude," an imaginary crime that defies definition. Cincinnatus spends his last days in an absurd jail, where he is visited by chimerical jailers, an executioner who masquerades as a fellow prisoner, and by his in-laws, who lug their furniture with them into his cell. When Cincinnatus is led out to be executed, he simply wills his executioners out of existence: they disappear, along with the whole world they inhabit

The stories of Vladimir Nabokov by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, for the first time, the stories of one of the century's greatest prose stylists collected in one elegant volume. These 65 stories (drawn from Nabokov's four earlier collections and including 13 stories never before published in book form) display the full range of his gifts: the dazzling sleights of hand, fanciful fairy tales, inventive puzzles, enchanting vignettes, and haunting, melancholic stories full of disturbing ambiguities. Written from the early 1920s - the years of his exile from Russia - to the mid-1950s, when he abandoned the story form and turned to his English-language masterpieces Lolita, Pale Fire, and Ada, these stories will remind us anew that we are in the company of a great original, a literary master. Edited by his son and translator, Dmitri Nabokov, The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov is a literary event and a celebration of his art."--Page before half-title
The eye by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

17 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nabokov's fourth novel, The Eye is as much a farcical detective story as it is a profoundly refractive tale about the vicissitudes of identities and appearances. Nabokov's protagonist, Smurov, is a lovelorn, excruciatingly self-conscious Russian emigre living in prewar Berlin, who commits suicide after being humiliated by a jealous husband, only to suffer even greater indignities in the afterlife

Collected poems by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vladimir Nabokov is acknowledged as one of the greatest prose stylists of the twentieth century, but his first love was poetry. This collection brings together the best of Nabokov's masterly verse. It spans the decades of his career, from 'Music', written in 1914 and probably Nabokov's first recorded poem, to the short, playful 'To Vera', composed in 1974. 'The University Poem', an extraordinary autobiographical poem suffused with rich description, wit and verbal dexterity, is here in English for the first time, and there is also verse written on America, lepidoptery, sport, love, exile and homeland, all revealing a new, unexpected side to Nabokov the writer."--Publisher description
