    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.

    meredith says: "this inspired me to read Nabokov's novels"
    "Marvelous!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I love Nabokov, so I may be a bit biased, but this book illuminates so much more than just a man and his life, and more than just his life's work. It is filled with insight into many aspects of life. It's also a very interesting history told through a wise and eloquent lens.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Nabokov I suppose. Also Vera.


    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

    Stefan's voice seems perfect for every aspect of this book. I very much enjoyed it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Chapter 11 section 2. A simple but beautiful notion about life, art, and the artist.
