Written in mischievous and magically flowing prose, this can be Nabokov's 'other' nice love tale; with a few of Lolita's perversity and masses extra playfulness. Romance follows Ada and Van from their first early life assembly via 8 years of rapture, in a e-book that is looked via many to be Nabokov's richest and such a lot ambitious.

Ne deriva una rivisitazione della vicenda sentimentale che, travalicando i canoni letterari dell'amore romantico, si orienta decisamente verso un linguaggio realistico, immediato, ricco di dialoghi e di frecciate sarcastiche rivolte anche a uomini e fatti del circostante ambiente padano contemporaneo.
