Why We Love This

Laughter in the Dark by Vladimir Nabokov. New York: New Directions, 1960. First edition thus. First published in 1938, this chilling novel was re-issued in 1960, of which this is a fine copy of the first printing, with a previous owner's signature. A man willingly conspires in his own downfall at the hands of his young lover, having been blinded in an accident. Very good condition in near fine dust jacket. Hardcover.
