Pale Fire
Nabokov offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures: a 999-line poem by the reclusive genius John Shade; an adoring foreword and commentary by Shade's self-styled Boswell, Dr. Charles Kinbote; a darkly comic novel of suspense, literary idolatry, one-upmanship, and political intrigue.

From Library Staff

I didn't forget you Nabokov or Audio CD lovers out there. His first novel post-Lolita, let the voice actors read Nabokov for you. A hilarious, thrilling tale, it will make you picture Peter Lorre shrouded in fog.
