    Description
    Translations by Dmitri Nabokov and Michael Scammell.

    The Gift is the phantasmal autobiography of Fyodor Godunov-Cherdynstev, 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 Fydor's elusive, beloved Zina, but Russian prose and poetry itself.

    Included for the first time in paperback is Nabokov's fascinating Addendum to The Gift, translated by Dmitri Nabokov.
