Laughter in the Dark (Original Russian title: Камера Обскура, Kamera Obskura) is a novel written by Vladimir Nabokov. It was released in 1932, translated into English as Camera Obscura in 1936 and with the more common name Laughter in the Dark in 1938. The book deals with the affection of a middle-aged man for a very young woman, resulting in a mutually parasitic relationship. In 1955, Nabokov used this theme again with Lolita to a much greater effect.
