These three stories of menace, magic and melancholy display Vladimir Nabokov's astonishing range and inventiveness. Whether describing an escape across a surreal tropical landscape, a fateful meeting or an unexpected – and threatening – return, each tale shows his dazzling sleight of hand, intellectual playfulness and fantastical imagination.
