This review is for: The Enchanter: Nabokov and Happiness (Hardcover)
I bought this book from Amazon; have read it twice already. An accessible introduction to Nabokov, who I had not previously read.

Lila Azam Zanganeh has written an incredibly intense, beautiful response to the beauty and light she finds in Nabokov’s writing. Her view is that Nabokov writes the happiness of life. That happiness and beauty shines in Lila Azam’s writing. An enchanting, delicious book that (as a student of beauty) I recommend.

The photograph is one of mine. The view through a window at our local swimming pool. I find myself thoughtful about the way our perception of the natural world is framed by windows and buildings .
