    Speak, Memory, first published in 1951 as Conclusive Evidence and then assiduously revised in 1966, is an elegant and rich evocation of Nabokov’s life and times, even as it offers incisive insights into his major works, including Lolita, Pnin, Despair, The Gift, The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, and The Luhzin Defense.

    Any additional comments?

    Nabokov is a Master of words, the memoir itself is beautifully written, but I regret spending the money on this audiobook. Let the narrator's Slavic surname not fool you - he butchers Russian names and titles hopelessly. Of course, if you are not familiar with Russian, it wouldn't be a problem, but I couldn't help but cringe every time.
