Publisher Description

Early dramatic works—plus two essays—by the author of Lolita and Pale Fire.
Including The Man from the USSR, The Event, The Pole, and The Grand-dad, this volume collects works for the theater written during Vladimir Nabokov’s émigré years, before his writings in English earned him worldwide fame and made him a seven-time National Book Award finalist. Also included are two of his essays on drama: “Playwriting” and “The Tragedy of Tragedy.”
Translated and with introductions by Dmitri Nabokov, this collection offers a fascinating glimpse into the work of the novelist, one of the twentieth century’s acknowledged literary geniuses.
