Cleaning Nabokov's House by Leslie Daniels

This one hasn't received any sign-ups so before I close it out, I thought I would repost it for one last chance. The publicist stated that it has been very popular among bloggers, so I encourage you to take another peek and sign-up if you are interested. I'll leave this open for a few more days and if there are no takers, I'll go ahead and close it. -- Jen (3/16/11)

Cleaning Nabokov's House: A NovelCleaning Nabokov's House:  A Novel
Author:  Leslie Daniels
Publication Date:  March 1, 2011
Publisher:  Touchstone

“I knew I could stay in this town when I found the blue enamel pot floating in the lake. The pot led me to the house, the house led me to the book, the book to the lawyer, the lawyer to the whorehouse, the whorehouse to science, and from science I joined the world.”

So begins Leslie Daniels’s funny and moving novel about a woman’s desperate attempt to rebuild her life. When Barb Barrett walks out on her loveless marriage she doesn’t realize she will lose everything: her home, her financial security, even her beloved children. Approaching forty with her life in shambles and no family or friends to turn to, Barb must now discover what it means to rely on herself in a stark new emotional landscape.

Guided only by her intense inner voice and a unique entrepreneurial vision, Barb begins to collect the scattered pieces of her life. She moves into a house once occupied by Vladimir Nabokov, author of the controversial masterpiece Lolita, and discovers a manuscript that may be his lost work. As her journey gathers momentum, Barb deepens a connection with her new world, discovering resources in her community and in herself that no one had anticipated. Written in elegant prose with touches of sharp humor and wit, Cleaning Nabokov’s House offers a new vision of modern love and a fervent reminder that it is never too late to find faith in our truest selves.
