Εκδότης: ΠΑΤΑΚΗΣ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3330-6047

Ο γιατρός Φίλιπ Γουάιλντ, άντρας με ευφυΐα, πνεύμα, περιουσία και πελώριο όγκο, είναι συνηθισμένος να υπομένει απανωτές ταπεινώσεις από τη σύζυγό του - τη νεαρή, λιγνή και ελαφρών ηθών Φλώρα. Στο μυθιστόρημα που έγραψε κάποιος από τους εραστές της και το έδωσε στον γιατρό, ένα "εξοργιστικό αριστούργημα" που καταγράφει τις απιστίες της, εμφανίζεται ως "Η Λώρα μου". Εξευτελισμένος, ο Γουάιλντ εξακολουθεί να βρίσκει χαρά στη ζωή παραδιδόμενος στην αυτοεξόντωση, ξεκινώντας από την αφαίρεση των δαχτύλων των ποδιών του. Ο Ναμπόκοφ, επειδή προαισ...

(P/B) LOLITA
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0349

With one of the most controversial novels of the twentieth century, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is a strange, troubling love story told by the one of the most unreliable narrators in literature. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an afterword by Craig Raine. Poet and pervert, Humbert Humbert becomes obsessed by twelve-year-old Lolita and seeks to possess her, first carnally and then artistically, out of love, 'to fix once for all the perilous magic of nymphets'. Is he in love or insane? A silver-tongued poet or a pervert? A tortur...

(P/B) PALE FIRE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0351

The famous American poet John Shade was murdered in 1959. This book contains his last poem, Pale Fire, together with a preface, a lengthy commentary and notes by Shade's editor, Charles Kinbote. Known on campus as the 'Great Beaver', Kinbote is haughty, inquisitive, intolerant, but is he - can he possibly be - mad, bad, even dangerous? As his wildly eccentric annotations slide into the personal, he reveals perhaps more than he should about 'the glorious friendship that brightened the last months of John Shade's life'.

(H/B) SPEAK, MEMORY
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0093

Nabokov's autobiography is like no other. Having lost his childhood and youth twice over, through ageing and exile, the author views the conventional memoir through a subtle kaleidoscope of shifting temporal and spatial perspectives which transform it into a poetic reverie on the past as another country. Speak, Memory evokes a vanished world - a world of great houses and idyllic country estates where Nabokov grew up, in the last years of Tsarist Russia, the favourite son of liberal, cultured and wealthy parents; a world doomed to be swept ...

(H/B) LOLITA
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0090

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause ce'le`bre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration - along with heartbreak and mordant wit - abound in thi...

ΓΕΛΙΟ ΣΤΟ ΣΚΟΤΑΔΙ
Εκδότης: ΤΑΞΙΔΕΥΤΗΣ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4156-0248

Ο Βλαντιμίρ Ναμπόκοφ περιγράφει -με την γνωστή ιμπρεσσιονιστική του γραφή- την ιστορία του μεσήλικα κριτικού τέχνης που ερωτεύτηκε τον βρόγχο της αυτοχειρίας του στο πρόσωπο μιας δεκαεξάχρονης καλλονής. Κι όπως ο ίδιος γράφει στην εισαγωγή του: "Μια φορά κι έναν καιρό, στο Βερολίνο, στην Γερμανία, ζούσε ένας άνθρωπος που τον λέγανε Αλμπίνους. Ήταν πλούσιος, ευυπόληπτος, ευτυχισμένος, μια μέρα, εγκατέλειψε τη γυναίκα του για μια μικρή του ερωμένη. Αγάπησε, δεν αγαπήθηκε και η ζωή του τέλειωσε ολέθρια. Κοντολογίς αυτή είναι η ιστορία και ίσ...

(H/B) PNIN
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0092

One of the best-loved of Nabokov’s novels, Pnin features his funniest and most heart-rending character. Professor Timofey Pnin is a haplessly disoriented Russian e'migre' precariously employed on an American college campus in the 1950s. Pnin struggles to maintain his dignity through a series of comic and sad misunder-standings, all the while falling victim both to subtle academic conspiracies and to the manipulations of a deliberately unreliable narrator. Initially an almost grotesquely comic figure, Pnin gradually grows in stature by cont...

Εκδότης: PENGUIN

Written in inimitable, magical prose, these sixty-five stories span Nabokov's extraordinary life and career. Arranged chronologically to illuminate his development as a writer, the collection displays Nabokov's astonishing range of technical and formal inventiveness: the dazzling sleight of hand, fanciful fairy tales, ingenious puzzles, enchanting vignettes and haunting melancholic narratives full of disturbing ambiguities.

(P/B) INVITATION TO A BEHEADING
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0346

Written in Berlin in 1934, Invitation to a Beheading contains all the surprise, excitement and magical intensity of a work created in two brief weeks of sustained inspiration. It takes us into the fantastic prison-world of Cincinnatus, a man condemned to death and spending his last days in prison not quite knowing when the end will come. Nabokov described the book as 'a violin in a void. The worldling will deem it a trick. Old men will hurriedly turn from it to regional romances and the lives of public figures... The evil-minded will perce...

(P/B) THE GIFT
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0344

The Gift is the phantasmal autobiography of Fyodor Godunov-Cherdyntsev, a writer living in the closed world of Russian emigre intellectuals in Berlin shortly after the First World War. In this his last, and to many his greatest, Russian novel, Nabokov unfolds the story of a writer's pursuit; a gorgeous tapestry of literature and Lepidoptera whose true hero is not Fyodor's elusive, beloved Zina, but Russian prose and poetry itself.

(P/B) DESPAIR
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0343

Self-satisfied, delighting in the many fascinating quirks of his own personality, Hermann Hermann is perhaps not to be taken too seriously. But then a chance meeting with a man he believes to be his double reveals a frightening 'split' in Hermann's nature. With shattering immediacy, Nabokov takes us into a deranged world, one full of an impudent, startling humour, dominated by the egotistical and scornful figure of a murderer who thinks himself an artist.

(P/B) GLORY
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0345

The fun of Glory is... to be sought in the echoing and linking of minor events, in back-and-forth switches, which produce an illusion of impetus; in an old daydream directly becoming the blessing of the ball hugged to one's chest, or in the casual vision of Martin's mother grieving beyond the time-frame of the novel in an abstraction of the future that the reader can only guess at, even after he has raced through the last seven chapters where a regular madness of structural twists and a masquerade of all characters culminate in a furious f...

(P/B) BEND SINISTER
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0341

The state has been recently taken over and is being run by the tyrannical and philistine ‘Average Man’ party. Under the slogans of equality and happiness for all, it has done away with individualism and freedom of thought. Only John Krug, a brilliant philosopher, stands up to the regime. His antagonist, the leader of the new party, is his old school enemy, Paduk - known as the ‘Toad’. Grieving over his wife’s recent death, Krug is at first dismissive of Paduk’s activities and sees no threat in them. But the sinister machine which Paduk has...

(P/B) THE REAL LIFE OF SEBASTIAN KNIGHT
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0353

Spurred on by admiration for his novelist half-brother and irritation at the biography written about him by Mr Goodman ("his slapdash and very misleading book"), the narrator, V, sets out to record Sebastian Knight's life as he understands it. But buried amid the extensive quoting, digressions, seeming explanations and digs, Sebastian's erratic and troubled persona remains as elusive as ever. Nabokov's first novel written in English, The Real Life of Sebastian Knight is a nuanced, enigmatic potrayal of the conflict between the real and the...

(P/B) THE ORIGINAL OF LAURA
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2790

The Original of Laura is Vladimir Nabokov's final, incredible unfinished novel in fragments. Dr Philip Wild, a man of brilliance, wit, fortune and tremendous bulk, is used to suffering humiliations at the hands of his wife, the younger, slender, and rudely promiscuous Flora. But in a novel, a 'maddening masterpiece' documenting her infidelities, written by one of her lovers and given to the doctor, she appears as My Laura. Dishonoured, Wild still finds pleasure in life, by indulging in self-annihilation, beginning with the removal of his t...

(P/B) LUZHIN DEFENSE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0350

Nabokov said of his chess-playing genius Luzhin, that despite his coarseness and grubby plainness, he is a lovable creation. Discovering his prodigious gift in boyhood, rising to the rank of international Grandmaster, Luzhin develops a lyrical passion for chess that renders the real world a phantom. As he confronts the fiery, swift-swooping Italian Grandmaster, Turati, he brings into play his carefully-devised defence. Making masterly play of metaphor and imagery, The Luzhin Defense is the book that, of his early works, Nabokov felt 'conta...

(P/B) KING, QUEEN, KNAVE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-0347

"Of all my novels this bright brute is the gayest', Nabokov wrote of King, Queen, Knave. Comic, sensual and cerebral, it dramatizes an Oedipal love triangle, a tragi-comedy of husband, wife and lover, through Dreyer the rich businessman, his ripe-lipped ad mercenary wife Martha, and their bespectacled nephew Franz. 'If a resolute Freudian manages to slip in' - Nabokov darts a glance to the reader - 'he or she should be warned that a number of cruel traps have been set here and there..."...

«Μια φορά κι έναν καιρό ζούσε στο Βερολίνο της Γερμανίας κάποιος ονόματι Αλμπίνους. Επρόκειτο για πλούσιο, αξιοσέβαστο, ευτυχισμένο άνθρωπο. Μια ωραία μέρα εγκατέλειψε τη σύζυγό του για χάρη νεαρής ερωμένης. Ήταν ερωτευμένος όχι όμως κι εκείνη. Η ζωή του τέλειωσε σε πλήρη καταστροφή. Αυτή είναι όλη η ιστορία διατυπωμένη σε λίγες γραμμές, που θα μας αρκούσαν αν δεν υπήρχε το όφελος και η απόλαυση της διήγησης. Και παρ' ότι μια ταφόπετρα, τυλιγμένη στα βρύα, έχει άφθονο χώρο για να περιλάβει τη συντμημένη εκδοχή μιας ανθρώπινης ζωής, η έκθε...
