As intricate as a house of mirrors, Nabokov's last novel is an ironic play on the Janus-like relationship between fiction and reality. It is the autobiography of the eminent Russian-American author Vadim Vadimovich N. (b. 1899), whose life bears an uncanny resemblance to Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov, (though the two are not to be confused). Focusing on his four wives, his books, and his muse, Dementia, the books leads us to suspect that the fictions Vadim has created as an author have crossed the line between his life's work and his life itself.
