Description
Iranian-born author Lila Azam Zanganeh was just ten months old when Vladimir Nabokov died in 1977, but this hasn't diminished her lifelong passion for the writer whose art she celebrates in this meditation on happiness. Here she seeks out Nabokov's feeling for memory, sexual passion, nature, loss, love in all its forms, and language in all its allusions. She also explores his geography: his Russian childhood, his European sojourns, and the landscapes of "his" America.

"Her book is a joyful response to the joy that inspired all of Nabokov's art. Flitting here and there like the great man's beloved butterflies, it delightfully succeeds in netting the butterfly hunter."—Salman Rushdie
