1 VN: The Life and Art of Vladimir Nabokov Field, Andrew
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 3rd edition hardcover with dustjacket 1986 Crown. Tiny remainder dot at bottom page edge. Superclean; pages bright; binding tight; appears unread. Light wear to jacket. 417pp, Index, B/W photos. Language: English. NOTE: Large format-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. 'Relying heavily on his own Nabokov: His Life in Art and Nabokov: His Life in Part, Field has produced the first critical biography of that writer. He describes in leisurely detail Nabokov's by-now familiar life: idyllic youth in pre-Bolshevik Russia, followed by 6 decades of exile and growing fame in the West. Field fixes Nabokov's oeuvre firmly in this personal and historical context (the kind of approach Nabokov loathed, of course) and sets The Gift, Lolita, and Pale Fire at the summit of his art. The final, self-absorbed novels Field dismisses as pseudo-Olympian. Lively, judicious, authoritative....'--Grove Koger, Library Journal, 1986.
