45.0% "OMG, in a conversation about a hypothetical novel, a character just described to the narrator the premise of The Enchanter, which was Nabokov's next published book (and which was greatly expanded into his masterpiece Lolita). I'm also tickled to find out that there exists in Berlin a thoroughfare called Agamemnonstrasse."
