Lila Azam Zanganeh introduced by Chandrahas Choudhury


With sly sophistication and ebullient charm, Lila Azam Zanganeh shares the intoxication of delirious joy to be found in reading — particularly in reading the masterpieces of ‘the great writer of happiness’, Vladimir Nabokov. Plunging into the enchanted and luminous worlds of Speak, Memory, Ada or Ardor and the infamous Lolita, Zanganeh seeks out the Nabokovian experience of time, memory, sexual passion, nature, loss, love in all its forms, language in all its allusions. This rhapsodic and beautifully illuminated session will both reignite the passion of experienced lovers of Nabokov’s work and lure the innocent reader to a well of delights.
