The Eye Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Nabokov's fourth novel, The Eye is as much a farcical detective story as it is a profoundly refractive tale about the vicissitudes of identities and appearances. Smurov, a lovelorn, excruciatingly self-conscious Russian ?migr? living in pre-war Berlin, commits suicide after being humiliated by a jealous husband, only to suffer even greater indignities in the afterlife as he searches for proof of his existence among fellow ?migr's who are too distracted to pay him any heed.?Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically.? ? John Updike
