The NoseThis is the story of a nose. No, really -- it's the story of a nose that leaves the face of an official in St. Petersburg (the "Russian" St. Petersburg, the one in Florida wasn't even a proper village when Gogol was alive). The nose leaves this man's face and wanders off to have a life of its own. It does strange stuff, too, What's to expect? Seriously, it's a "nose."
