    • It is not easy to integrate death scenes or death per se in a story. There are sometimes deaths within a story we readers fail to understand – these are the worst.
      As you love Nabokov’s stories despite the deaths, these make probably sense from your point of view.

      • Oh Karen! Of course! I am on a cell phone, picking away at letters and comments, while at my Mom’s watching reruns of, “Blueboods.” πŸ™‚
