Written in mischievous and magically flowing prose by the acclaimed author of "Lolita" and "Pale Fire", "Ada or Ardor" is a romance that follows Ada from her first childhood meeting with Van Veen on his uncle's country estate, in a 'dream-bright' America, through eighty years of rapture, as they cross continents, are continually parted and reunited, come to learn the strange truth about their singular relationship and, decades later, put their extraordinary experiences into words. This title is part of a major new beautiful hardback series of Vladimir Nabokov's work in Penguin Classics.
