Adam Thirlwell clearly has a lot of charm

Adam Thirlwell clearly has a lot of charm. Literary estates are not generally administered by pussycats, yet Nabokov's heirs have let him publish his translation of the grand master's 'Mademoiselle O' (billed as 'a story never before translated into English', in fact a variant of a well-known work) as part of his own book on style and translation. The effect is of Thirlwell graciously taking Nabokov (who died in 1977, the year before Thirlwell's birth) under his wing.

Adam Thirlwell FRSL (born 22 August 1978) is a British novelist. He has twice been named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists. In 2015 he received the . Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Thirlwell was educated at the independent Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, Elstree. He read English at New College, Oxford, where he got the top first

Perhaps inevitably, Miss Herbert, which marries a meandering analysis of fiction with a new translation of Nabokov's .

Thirlwell treats the work of relative unknowns with almost as much regard as the masterpieces of experimental literature. His erudite, gossipy book is in love with strange connections and stray details: a rumpled bedspread, a long-forgotten gambling debt

Miss Herbert explores the solutions to this conundrum. Adam Thirlwell was named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists in 2003 and again in 2013. This book demonstrates a new way of reading internationally - complete with maps, illustrations, and helpful diagrams.

Adam Thirlwell was born in 1978. In 2003, he was chosen as one of Granta's Best British Novelists under forty.

Thirlwell refers to the book as a kind of "inside-out novel", in which novelists and their characters are characters, and he's worked up a bunch of kooky McSweeney's-type indexes ("Index of Real Life" etc), to sit at the back.

The secret history of novelists is often a history of exile and tourism - a history of language learning. Like the story of Gustave Flaubert and Juliet Herbert, it is a history of loss and mistakes. As Flaubert finished Madame Bovary, Miss Herbert, his niece's governess, translated the novel into English. But this translation has since been lost. Miss Herbert provides a map to the imaginary country shared between writers and readers. For translation, and emigration, is the way into a new history of the novel. We assume that we can read novels in translation. We also assume that style does not translate. But the history of the novel is the history of the novel is the history of style. Miss Herbert explores the solutions to this conundrum. This book demonstrates a new way of reading internationally - complete with maps, illustrations, and helpful diagram. And it includes a slim appendix: 'Mademoiselle O', a story by Vladimir Nabokov, which he worked on in three languages, over thirty years, and whose original French version is now translated into English by Adam Thirlwell.
