Corrections: Not Racine. Rabelais is the birthday club member (along with Miguel, Will and Nabokov.)*
Assouline's blog: http://passouline.blog.lemonde.fr/ The ten symptoms of "bookaholism" were proposed by Paulo Roberto Pires.

Sandy Klein sent:
http://www.evolutionnews.org/2008/07/vladimir_nabokov_furious_darwi.html with a posting by David Klinghoffer that begins with "So was Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) secretly a fundamentalist Christian, a mad man, or just plain ignorant?" and ends with: "Singh misses the point of Nabokov's question. It's not the perfection of the pattern that needs an explanation. The novelist/lepidopterist asked, if a particular artistic subtlety in that perfection is beyond the ability of a predator to perceive, how did nature select it?**"

The year-old evolutional posting fits in nicely with Tom Rymour's short-story related to " intelligent design": no one in Tom's "sub prime" hereafter ( hereafter is not a word that serves to describe Tom's matricial idea), knows anything about "Prime" - its next level - and, while still inhabiting it, Nabokov appears as a talented designer of butterflies and a studious of mimetism, unable to reach porcupine and cypress walks.

*JM: More than sightings, we take a fantastic tour through a digital Hereafter, there's no IPH and potato about it! ( Chance, like love, is only an illusion!). A young Russian chap in sub prime, Sirin, belongs to the birthday-club gang, with Racine, Shakespeare and Cervantes, but he is also driven about by Véra and visited by Dolly Schiller ( who was created right in Sub Prime) ...
** D.Klinghoffer's "nature" is anthropomorphic, not VN's lepidopterological inquisition,nor Tom's.
