A Look Inside Nabokov’s Head

I was a few pages deep into my Amazon recommended queue (an activity that I save specifically for reading days) and found something that really baffled me. There is a book by Nabokov–published posthumously–that I had never heard of. It’s called Insomniac Dreams: Experiments with Time, and it is basically what the title suggests it is: Nabokov’s dream diary. He recorded his dreams on index cards right after waking up, in order to test “the theory that time may go in reverse, so that, paradoxically, a later event may generate an earlier dream.” I really wonder if Nabokov’s dreams are as deep and layered as his novels are.
