The book deals with the affection of a middle-aged man for a very young woman, resulting in a mutually parasitic relationship. Like his best film "The Loved Ones" (and one of the truly great films to earn the moniker of black comedy), director Tony Richardson's adaptation of Nabokov's "Laughter In the Dark" is uneasily funny and consistently unnerving, especially in its final third after free-spirit Anna Karina has successfully and insidiously evaporated the posh lifestyle and marriage of an art dealer (Nicol Williamson). Laughter in the Dark is a brilliantly wicked piece set in the movie world of Berlin during the early 1930s. I won't reveal the plot, but suffice it to say that if you've enjoyed Lolita, you should enjoy this novel, which has some interesting parallels.
