    • From the New York Times Book Review: Mr. Boyd has a remarkable gift for drawing life and literature together...[What he does] in this impressive biography reveals to us a Nabokov who has been far too little known...As a biography [Boyd's] book can hardly be surpassed. It is a definitive life of the man and a superbly documented chronicle of his time. (Quoted in the Google Books preview).
