Laughter in the Dark

Laughter in the Dark

Vladimir Nabokov


Albinus, a good, middle-aged guy and aspiring filmmaker, abandons his spouse for a lover part his age: Margot, who desires to develop into a film superstar herself. whilst Albinus introduces her to Rex, an American motion picture manufacturer, catastrophe ensues. What emerges is an elegantly sardonic and irresistibly ironic novel of wish, deceit, and deception, a curious romance set within the movie international of Berlin within the Thirties.
