An Intro

I read an introduction to a book today that described how the book was almost impossible define, yet there was a disclaimer that the introduction gave away the meaning and ending of the book. That was a strange arrogance I thought, when considering that the book was considered by many to be impenetrable, and which was only deemed a classic after much time had passed.

I wanted to read the introduction more after this claim, because I wanted to see how wrong-footed it might be.

The book is used in a film I like.

What is the book? Pale Fire.

How can you spoil a book by a master like Nabokov?

Would you not have to be on the same level of accomplishment as him? That seems unlikely.

A book where the introduction gets you thinking has to be pretty interesting though, right? I’m hoping so.
