Re: Take-offs, Ripoffs, Homages, etc
If these are two stories are about sons in mental hospitals, then
Moore's adaptation/homage is interesting enough and done well enough.
But if the original is in fact about something else, a reader of
Nabokov might find her effort odd and off-putting. I guess I did.
