A story of doubles & doppelgangers. Pay very close attention to each paragraph, sentence and word with this story because as soon as you think you've figured everything out, Nabokov turns everything upside down. The key is to look beneath the surface. A perfect example of the secrets within the wordplay is held within the title itself.—Josef

John Cassavetes was a pioneer in American film-making. The way we view contemporary cinema has much to do with his approach to the medium.
