Despair, Paperback

Despair Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



Self-satisfied, delighting in the many fascinating quirks of his own personality, Hermann Hermann is perhaps not to be taken too seriously.

But then a chance meeting with a man he believes to be his double reveals a frightening 'split' in Hermann's nature.

With shattering immediacy, Nabokov takes us into a deranged world, one full of an impudent, startling humour, dominated by the egotistical and scornful figure of a murderer who thinks himself an artist.
