Dear Marianne,

I wonder if you could you spare the time to communicate some of those humorous stories? Much obliged, Fran Assa

I just saw this news on the NYT and was going to post the same link. Very sad.

I began speaking with Mr. Appel via telephone a few years ago when I began my On the Road With Lolita project. He recounted to me some humorous stories of how annotations found their way into his well-known edition. I was very grateful for his generosity to me and his interest in my project.

Marianne

Alfred Appel Jr., a former student of Nabokov and a Nabokovian whose edition of The Annotated Lolita shaped many readers' understanding of that novel, is dead. Appel played a major role in helping to establish the academic study of Nabokov in the 1970s, and he will be greatly missed. Here is his obituary from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/07/arts/07appel.html?_r=1&hpw
