Vladimir Nabokov

This is the polar opposite of the Hemingway boxing photo. But, even so, you can also tell just about everything you need to know about Nabokov from this portrait. You still ought to read Nabokov though. And you can tell so much about people by which Nabokov novel is their favorite. People who are really into "Ada" tend to be incredibly troubled and have possibly incestuous tendencies. My favorite is "Pnin." Take from that whatever you want.
