Reviews

"Maar's discovery is so astonishing that you would need to have firmly opted for ignorance to maintain it was unimportant."
--Daniel Kehlmann, from the Introduction

"Maar is a fine literary sleuth, and his discovery of what may be an ur-Lolita means we will never again look on Nabokov's masterpiece in quite the old light."
--John Banville, Man Booker Prize winner 2005
