Dear Udith,



To be precise, it's Rachmaninov's Prelude in G Minor, op. 23, no. 5.



All best,

Dear List,

Could someone tell me what the Piano piece which is featured on the NOJ
loading page is? It was also on the film version of the Piano Teacher by
Michael Hanneke, but I can't seem to find out what it is!

best wishes,

Udith Dematagoda

Dear Udith,



The web designer tells me that the piano piece is by Rachmaninoff,
specifically chosen because the composer was Nabokov's aficionado.



The list has discussed Lila Azam Zanganeh's new book, but it looks like the
para-Nabokoviana genre becomes trendy: "The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov"
by Paul Russell is coming soon:

http://www.fictiondb.com/author/paul-russell~the-unreal-life-of-sergey-nabok
ov~295304~b.htm



(From the book description: "...it is the honesty and vulnerability of
Sergey, our young gay narrator, that hook the reader: his stuttering
childhood in the shadow of his brilliant brother, his opium-fueled evenings
with his sometime lover Cocteau, his troubled love life on the margins of
the Ballets Russes and its legendary cast")



Also Leslie Daniel's novel, "Cleaning Nabokov's House," just came out in
Russian translation. Review:

The NPR item about the book: "A 39-year-old divorcee rebuilding her life
finds herself living in a house once occupied by a famous author. So begins
the novel, 'Cleaning Nabokov's House' by Leslie Daniels."
