Vladimir NabokovSpeak, Memory

19.95 EUROS

Hans Theys’ selection for his storefront.

“Nabokov’s best book is about Gogol (and literature). The book that comes second for me is this biography, which does not follow the chronology of documents, but starts from images (first a family photo, then mental images). The images that struck me the most were those of his mother, father and brother. Especially his love for his father. And especially his love for his mother. And the scene with the peasants daughter. Stunning.

I refer to this book in a recent text about the young painter Felix De Clercq.” Hans Theys
