If you ever get the chance to read any works by Nabokov,you will not be dissapointed.and for those unfamiliar with his work, this collection is a perfect palce to start. There is something to be said for a writer that can flawlessly portay all walks of life, across the world and time it's self with sheer poetry and grace.
I feel honored to have come across this collection. Each story is a jewel, it's own painting, it's own little universe. While some of these tales are truely terrifying and upsetting, others are beautiful and tender. So far my favorites unclude: 'Sounds', 'Beneficence', 'The Thunderstorm', 'La Veneziana', and 'Christmas'. This is a collection that can be savored slowly, and contains stories to be read, and re-read.
