N.V. De Wunderbaum is a rewriting of the Russian writer Nikolay Gogol's satirical story entitled The Nose (1835), in which one of the characters loses his nose and starts to lead a life of its own. With this bizarre story, in which the writer never really explains the true facts of this phenomenon, Gogol responded to the principles of the readers, who like to read absurd stories, but still long for a logical explanation.
