Some overlooked Nabokov …

… Donald Rayfield - Pride, Prejudice & Pushkin | Literary Review | Issue 482. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… unlike the embarrassingly jejune fragments of his novels, such as The Original of Laura, that have been published posthumously, this collection includes some of his sharpest prose, as well as his most cursory. It spans Nabokov’s career, from juvenilia to senilia.
