520    "In his novel based on the extraordinary life of the gay 
       brother of Vladimir Nabokov, Paul Russell re-creates the 
       rich and changing world in which Sergey, his family and 
       friends lived; from wealth and position in pre-
       revolutionary Russia, to the halls of Cambridge University,
       and the Parisian salon of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. 
       Toklas. But it is the honesty and vulnerability of Sergey,
       our young gay narrator, that hook the reader: his 
       stuttering childhood in the shadow of his brilliant 
       brother, his opium-fueled evenings with his sometime lover
       Cocteau, his troubled love life on the margins of the 
       Ballets Russes and its legendary cast, and his isolation 
       in war torn Berlin where he will ultimately be arrested, 
       sent to a camp and die in 1945"
