A fictional autobiography narrated by Vadim Vadimovich N., Look at the Harlequins! tells the story of an almost uncanny biographical likeness to the novel's author, Vladimir Nabokov. Many critics viewed the parallels between the author and his character as a parody, or a way for Nabokov to poke fun at the commonly held public belief that the controversial protagonist of Lolita was also a reflection of the "sexually deviant" author.
