Description
"This insidiously charming book teaches readers about the place of lepidoptery in the life sciences and the kinds of questions that natural scientists seek to answer....Like Nabokov himself, this volume exemplifies some of the virtues shared by art and science: wit, intelligence, and, above all, meticulousness."---The New Yorker

"Charming...In a world that often separates science and culture like church and state, this book reminds us that, for Nabokov, butterflies helped shape 'a habitual way of looking at the world' that was ultimately conducive to great literature and to great lepidoptery alike."---New York Times Book Review

..".a grand book: erudite, generous, and wise. It is written with a grace and intelligence worthy of its eponymous subject."---Boston Globe

"Readers with a taste for science and literature will love this book, which is both entertaining and polymathically informative--rather like the English/Russian, naturalist/novelist/scholar/artist Nabokov himself."---Publishers Weekly (starred review)
