Vladimir Nabokov, one of the best prose stylists of all time, produced a monumental body of work in Russian and English. His fictional titles Lolita and Pale Fire are consistently ranked among the best of the last 100 years. Speak, Memory, a work of nonfiction, is also cited as a crowning achievement of prose. Nabokov’s literary brilliance garnered international acclaim throughout his life. While he did not necessarily seek out publicity, he did not shy away from it, either. In this volume, Think, Write, Speak: Uncollected Essays, Reviews, Interviews, and Letters to the Editor, Nabokov’s previously uncompiled public texts are made available in one document. This volume is thorough, well edited, and rich with insight into Nabokov’s literary development. The compilation spans the 1920s to the 1970s, showcasing his entire literary career. For any Nabokov collector, Think, Write, Speak is a welcome contribution, full of information, Nabokov’s wit and unique brilliance so often shown in the public sphere.

This first edition, first printing is in fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine first edition of Nabokov’s essays, reviews, interviews, and letters.
