      Having done my wiki question of the day homework, he was quite an amazing man.
      He wrote about mistaken death because this is how his father died in Berlin.
      Just like Nabokov, I did not like my two years in Berlin much, the weather was as dreary as what Hitler left behind.
      His critics disparaged his over attention to language and detail. I thought the movie Lolita was cutting edge for its time and subject.
