The Real Life of Sebastian Knight
But buried amid the extensive quoting, digressions, seeming explanations and meaningful digs at Mr Goodman, Sebastian's erratic and troubled persona remains as elusive as ever. As does the narrator's. Do they exist or are they an illusion? In the unresolved confusion between the real and unreal there are no answers, for this is a book that defies summing up in its quest for human truth.

Review: The Real Life of Sebastian KnightUser Review - Volker Durre - Goodreads
Nabokov is without a doubt a great writer. And this short book is delightfully ironic and cleverly self referential to many readers, but not to me. For me it is rather dreadful, but that is just my personal experience. Read full review
