Professor Timofey Pnin, previously of Tsarist Russia, is now precariously positioned at the heart of campus America.
Battling with American life and language, Pnin must face great hazards in this new world: the ruination of his beautiful lumber-room-as-office; the removal of his teeth and the fitting of new ones; the search for a suitable boarding-house; and, the trials of taking the wrong train.
