Currently reading. This was one of Qin’s books, and I first read it about 12 years ago – she was a Nabokov fiend. Published in 1941, it was the first of Nabokov’s books written in English, and it’s about a man trying to research and write a biography of his dead half-brother. Centered around the idea that nothing can be known satisfactorily, especially through language, it is considered a precursor to the postmodern novel.
