Natasha by Vladamir Nabokov

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 04, 2008

The New Yorker has some new fiction by Vladimir Nabokov that has never been published in English, a short story called Natasha. The story was recently uncovered and translated:

Written around 1924, when Nabokov was in his mid-twenties (five years after his family fled Russia, and two years after his father was assassinated in Berlin), it was discovered in the writer’s archives at the Library of Congress a couple of years ago, and was translated by his son, Dmitri.
