Nabokov short stories are vignettes that are more vivid than reality. In the 10 minutes it takes to read one, you immediately experience a complex and multi-layered world rich in senses and driven with story and are spit back out again as abruptly as you entered.
Thank god Nabokov's genius does not end with Lolita. Here is an almost complete collection to fully indulge in. Beautiful, expressive, and anything but ambiguous to help with the after pangs of little Dolly.
