MARY by Vladimir Nabokov
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 1970

"The story is a slight thing at best—a frail straw in the wind."
This is Nabokov's first novel (Mashenka), more properly novella, which is best read for its germinal indications of the later works to follow: particularly the theme of the emigre in transition which will be so triumphantly realized in another habitat, Pnin; and the retrospective refrains of Speak, Memory.
