Vladimir Nabokovís novel Ada involves authorial deception on multiple levels. Nabokov believed that the job of the author was not to portray reality, but to create it, and that is what both he and his protagonist, Van Veen, do in Ada. Papers discussing the authorís role in the relationship between art and reality in Ada will be considered. Please send submissions (as MSWord attachments) to Sarah Kingston, firstname.lastname@example.org.
