The Enchanter

An Adventure in the Land of Nabokov



A rhapsodic and charming account of discovering happiness in reading Nabokov

Plunging into the enchanted and luminous worlds of Speak, Memory, Ada, or Ardor; and the infamous Lolita, Lila Azam Zanganeh seeks out the Nabokovian experience of time, memory, sexual passion, nature, loss, love in all its forms, language in all its allusions. She explores his Russian childhood, his European sojourns, the landscapes of "his" America, hallucinates an interview and seeks the "crunch of happiness" in Nabokov's singular vocabulary. This rhapsodic and beautifully illuminated book that will lure the innocent reader to a well of delights.
