Hemon's favorites and VN's "Pnin"

Jorio Dauster sends:

P5Pfg> Aleksandar Hemon's 6 favorite books

Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov (Vintage, $15). Nabokov's main characters are often
haughty - if fascinating - sociopaths. But I love Timofey Pnin because his
incapacity for handling the world is downright heroic. Everyone admires
Nabokov for his turn of sentence and sparkle of metaphor. He was also a very
funny man, and one of the great literary architects. Every piece is in its
place because there is no other place for it.

zombie apocalypse.
