The Original of Laura by Vladimir Nabokov

The word “fragments” in this book’s subtitle is meaningful. This isn’t a novel, but some pieces of one. It’s special: it’s a—rather confusing—glimpse into how genius Nabokov created one of his masterpieces. His unique style and spectacular smarts ring out. I have the hardcover edition, which is also a wonderful piece of design.

    If only because the book is my namesake, I’m adding to my list. :)
