Having moved away from Nabokov studies and academic pursuits in recent years it is only now, belatedly, that I have heard of Don’s death.
Reading these wonderful tributes to him on the website, there is nothing I can think to add, or express better. But I would like to share with the community my respect and affection for a rarely gifted, generous, wise man. It is no exaggeration to say that any small contribution I may have made over the years to the development of Nabokov studies in the UK is owed entirely to his shining example, encouragement and unfailing support.
