The Gift

The Gift

Vladimir Nabokov

Language: English

Pages: 384

ISBN: 0679727256

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

The Gift is the last of the novels Nabokov wrote in his native Russian and the crowning achievement of that period in his literary career.  It is also his ode to Russian literature, evoking the works of Pushkin, Gogol, and others in the course of its narrative:  the story of Fyodor Godunov-Cherdyntsev, an impoverished émigré poet living in Berlin, who dreams of the book he will someday write--a book very much like The Gift itself.
