The Enchanter is the Ur-Lolita, the precursor to Nabokov’s classic novel. At once hilarious and chilling, it tells the story of an outwardly respectable man and his fatal obsession with certain pubescent girls, whose coltish grace and subconscious coquetry reveal, to his mind, a special bud on the verge of bloom. Praise for The Enchanter “A tale of crime and punishment… a foretaste of one of this century’s great novels.” —Wall Street Journal “The Enchanter is an alarming, sensuous and shimmering forerunner of Lolita…. It is a delight to have this early version of Nabokov’s strange, compelling fantasy.” —USA Today “Sensuous, amusing, scary… Nabokov lifts [The Enchanter] through the exhilarating artistry of his poetic and explicit language.” —Boston Herald “[The Enchanter is] in the top class of Nabokov’s work.” —John Bayley, Spectator (London) “Elegantly written and exquisitely shaped.” —The Sunday Times (London) “The Enchanter exhibits all of [Nabokov’s] cunning and exactness of execution…. The Enchanter will indeed enchant.” —Listener (London) “One of the most exciting novellas ever written, Nabokov near, or at least clearly anticipating, his very best.” —Literary Review (London)
