Nine Stories (Nabokov)

Nine Stories (Nabokov)
1st edition

Nine Stories is an English-language collection of stories written in Russian, French, and English by Vladimir Nabokov. It was published in 1947 by New Directions in New York City, as the second issue of a serial, Direction.

The nine stories are:

  • "The Aurelian" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Pil'gram")
  • "Cloud, Castle, Lake" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Oblako, ozero, bashnia")
  • "Spring in Fialta" (a translation by Nabokov and Peter Pertzov of "Vesna v Fialta")
  • "Mademoiselle O" (a translation by VN with Hilda Ward from the French)
  • "A Forgotten Poet"
  • "The Assistant Producer"
  • "That in Aleppo Once..."
  • "Time and Ebb"
  • "Double Talk" (which would later be retitled "Conversation Piece")

No further edition of the book was ever published; all nine stories subsequently reappeared in Nabokov's Dozen, and much later within The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov.
