Comment

BB writes that Nabokov's Dark Cinema (1974), reveals Appel's deep interest in popular culture, especially American (film, photography, advertising, comics), and in Nabokov's attention not just to highbrow culture but to lowbrow or nobrow.

Appel himself wrote: "The good reader will realize that this book is finally about my mind ... and the ways in which high culture and the popular arts intertwine in one consciousness”.
