    Funny, profound, and actually a pretty accurate portrayal of some facets of our government at this juncture in time Nabokov, what can you say about a man who can write a profound novel on a perverted old man and then write a goddam play like this He is a versatile master of the written word I d suggest giving it a read if you can find a copy.
