This is Nabokov's story of Dreyer, a wealthy boisterous proprietor of a men's clothing emporium, who is repugnant to his wife, Martha. Attracted to his money but repelled by his oblivious passion, she longs for their nephew instead, the myopic Franz. Newly arrived in Berlin, Franz soon repays his uncle's condescension in his aunt's bed.
