Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Pushkin Press
A superb early postmodern classic by one of Nabokov’s fellow emigre writers, rediscovered after more than half a century
‘Of all my memories, of all my life’s innumerable sensations, the most onerous was that of the single murder I had committed.’ A man comes across a short story which recounts in minute detail his killing of a soldier, long ago – from the victim’s point of view. It’s a story that should not exist, and whose author can only be a dead man. So begins the strange quest for the elusive writer ‘Alexander Wolf’. A singular classic, The Spectre of Alexander Wolf is a psychological thriller and existential inquiry into guilt and redemption, coincidence and fate, love and death.
