Profile: Vladimir Nabokov


In the blog posting for Kafka, I wrote: "Why can't we profile Nabokov?" Soon after, reader Michelle from Bloomington, IN, wrote: "[Nabokov's] wife was Jewish... Apparently he identified with Jews. See the article "'Nabokov's Minyan': A Study in Philo-Semitism" by Shalom Goldman from Modern Judaism for more info."

Great. We had our Jewish in with Nabokov!

And now, with the "The Original of Laura" out today after being hidden for 30 years, here it is.

  1. Read "The Original of Laura" last night. It's... incomplete, to say the least, but you see the brilliance on almost every page... I mean index card.
