Book Discussion - Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabakov

Share

September 24, 2014

Program Locations:

Mulberry Street Library

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion of Vladamir Nabakov's Pale Fire. You can pick up a copy at the branch or reserve a copy here. 

Book Summary - In Pale Fire Nabokov offers a cornucopia of deceptive pleasures: a 999-line poem by the reclusive genius John Shade; an adoring foreword and commentary by Shade's self-styled Boswell, Dr. Charles Kinbote; a darkly comic novel of suspense, literary idolatry and one-upmanship, and political intrigue.
