The Vices

Oliver Vice, forty-one, prominent philosopher, scholar, and art collector, is missing and presumed dead, over the side of Queen Mary 2. Troubled by his friend's possible suicide, the unnamed narrator launches an all-consuming investigation into Vice's life story. Fascination turns to obsession as he peels back the layers of the Vice family's rich and bizarre history.

 

The Vices

"In its deft exploration of the way identity, especially Jewish identity, is constructed and performed, The Vices does justice to its elegant Nabokovian inspiration."
