About this title:

Synopsis:

Glory is the wryly ironic story of Martin Edelweiss, a twenty-two-year-old Russian émigré of no account, who is in love with a girl who refuses to marry him. Convinced that his life is about to be wasted and hoping to impress his love, he decides to embark upon a ?perilous, daredevil project? ? an illegal attempt to reenter the Soviet Union, from which he and his mother had fled in 1919. He succeeds ? but at a terrible cost. ?Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically.? ? John Updike

From the Inside Flap: Glory is the wryly ironic story of Martin Edelweiss, a twnety-two-year-old Russian émigré of no account, who is in love with a girl who refuses to marry him.  Convinced that his life is about to be wasted and hoping to impress his love, he embarks on a "perilous, daredevil project"--an illegal attempt to re-enter the Soviet Union, from which he and his mother had fled in 1919.  He succeeds--but at a terrible cost.
