  • Bend Sinister

    By Vladimir Nabokov

    Our Price: $16.95
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9780679727279
    • Publisher: Vintage International
    • Published: April 1990
    The first novel Nabokov wrote while living in America and the most overtly political novel he ever wrote, BEND SINISTER is a modern classic. While filled with veiled puns and characteristically delightful wordplay, it is, first and foremost, a haunting and compelling narrative about a civilized man and his child caught up in a tyranny of a police state. Professor Adam Krug, the country's foremost philosopher, offers the only hope of resistance to Paduk, dictator and leader of the Party of the Average Man. In a folly of bureaucratic bungling and ineptitude, the government attempts to co-opt Krug's support in order to validate the new regime.
