Well, not really. But he does make a quirky appearance in The
Egyptologist, by Arthur Phillips, a novel described by the "St. Louis
Post-Dispatch" as "an astonishingly clever Nabokovian tangle of
evansions and deceptions." At the conclusion of the novel, by the
author of Prague (a novel set entirely in Budpest!) Phillips
"gratefully acknowledges the kind assistance" of, among others, "the
invaluable example of Miss Vivian Darkbloom."
