The short stories of Vladimir Nabokov, varied and often strange to the unfamiliar ear, are complex in conception and execution. In audio form, these 65 stories benefit greatly from Arthur Morey’s steady, firmly paced delivery and general lack of affectation. This fine production excels in clarity and consistency of voice, and in all-around good judgment regarding what would make an audio production of this particular collection accessible and pleasurable. The only fault here is that it’s sometimes difficult to mark the break from one story to the next. Nabokov’s gift for word images is at its most wondrous in this wide-ranging collection of stories, many of them gems, all of them unique. Commuters and multi-taskers, beware: This title is recommended for quiet, focused listening. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2011]
