Speak, Memory, Vladimir Nabokov

Not only for Nabokov lovers, I swear (but really, really good for Nabokov lovers). In this memoir, the Russian giant investigates the way memory works, how we experience it, and in turn, how we experience and talk about life, time, hell, and the nature of existence. Plus, I’m a firm believer in the idea that just reading enough of this man’s sentences, no matter what topic they cover, is likely to make you more interesting.
