This is Nabokov in two hundred and forty thousand words are paved the desire journey, shy, awkward, pain, evil difficult journey, in a very hesitant, prose, started slowly daily narration. From any perspective, this is a kind of difficult to imitate life, but it gives us a strong awareness of the resonance shows, it is a model of freedom, one example of humanism, it is still very strange disease, unusual disease, it violates our too normal life, as well as too mature novel style, here, desire and conspiracy as truth is incontrovertible, or truth itself is the desire and conspiracy.
