Summary
"This is not a novel, but novelists are its characters." "The Delighted States demonstrates a new way of reading internationally. It is a project, a book of tricks - complete with photographs, illustrations, and a variety of helpful diagrams. And it comes with a companion, a slim appendix: "Mademoiselle O," a text by Vladimir Nabokov, halfway between fiction and fact, which Nabokov worked on, in three languages, over thirty years, and whose original French version is now translated into English by Adam Thirlwell."--Jacket
