Glory is the wryly ironic story of Martin Edelweiss, a twenty-two-year-old Russian émigré of no account, who is in love with a girl who refuses to marry him. Convinced that his life is about to be wasted and hoping to impress his love, he decides to embark upon a “perilous, daredevil project” — an illegal attempt to reenter the Soviet Union, from which he and his mother had fled in 1919. He succeeds — but at a terrible cost. “Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically.” — John Updike

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by DoctorM | 2/12/2014

    " A very early and rather romantic Nabokov. A young man's novel, but surprisingly powerful, and full of Russian romanticism and melancholy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jonathan | 2/7/2014

    " Beautiful early Nabokov displaying all of his later concerns and framing playfulness in the form of a coming of age story. Contains one of the great goalkeeper scenes in literature, and one of the most vertiginous, breathtaking narrative gambits at its end, achieved with a sleight of hand that I suspect Conrad would have applauded. "

    " Really great novel by everyone's favorite Russian emigre. I liked it better than Pale Fire, most people would probably argue me on that one, but fuck you, I say. "

    " A mixture of Faulkner and Woolf in the Nabokovian style. An enjoyable read. "
