Praise

“Natasha Randall’s English, in her new translation, has exactly the right degree of loose velocity. . . . (Nabokov’s version, the best-known older translation, is a bit more demure than Randall’s, less savage.)” —James Wood, London Review of Books 

“[A] smart, spirited new translation.” —The Boston Globe 

“One of the most vivid and persuasive portraits of the male ego ever put down on paper.” —Neil LaBute, from the Foreword
