OXO Good Grips Garlic Press by OXO

This press is unsuitable for any purpose. Specifically, it cannot actually press a clove of garlic -- the majority escapes around the edges of the press head. I threw mine away, and you will as well, should you foolishly buy one.
Invitation to a Beheading (Penguin Modern Classics&hellip by Vladimir Nabokov

2.0 out of 5 stars Hasty and shallow, 3 Mar 2003
With the possible exception of juvenilia such as _Glory_, this is the least important and least compelling of Nabokov's works. The dream-like frustration it portrays does not seem to have any emotional impact for the author (in stark contrast to the handling of such situations by Kafka, to whose work this one is inevitably compared). The language is loose and diffuse: the Nabokov of _Lolita_ or _Pnin_ would have told the same story, with more zest and intelligence, in half the words. This (together with _Bend Sinister_) should be at the bottom of your Nabokov list.
