Disambiguation Notice

Note that Nabokov/Sirin published two works called Соглядатай 'The spy': a novella first published in the émigré journal Sovremennye zapiski in 1930 and translated into English as The Eye, and a story collection including the novella published as a book in Paris in 1938. The latter has recently been republished by the Russian company Azbuka as Совершенство 'Perfection,' the name of one of the stories.
