Prior to leaving Iran and publishing her international bestseller Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi had already given considerable thought to the fiction of Vladimir Nabokov. Reflecting on such novels as Pale Fire, Bend Sinister, and of course Lolita, Nafisi deftly explores the worlds apparently lost to Nabokov's characters, and how these dazzling novels hold a mirror to Nabokov's experiences of physical, linguistic, and nostalgic exile.
