Read this!

This is my favorite book OF ALL. I have read it at least five times. It has rich, beautiful prose, and is funny without cruelty. It is everything wonderful about Nabokov. I adore this little book. It has the most wonderful first sentence of a book EVER! Better even than Anna Karinin. Please ignore the nickname, which is a reference to our local library and my job in family practice all in one.
