An amazing story within a story within a mad man's fantasy. This is the tale of a poet who is writing an epic poem about his own life and about the delusional neighbor who is convinced that the poem is about the fabulous life he believes he, himself, has lived. The writing, the plot, and the narrative are pure perfection. I first read this book in 1990 and I still remember it detail, still recommend it, and still consider it one of the finest works I have ever read. If you have enjoyed anything else by Nabokov, you must read this.

One of the best- quite hysterical.
