As Alexey Sklyarenko wryly notes below, the SF Chronicle publication of
Eric Naiman's review (the first few sections of which appeared in Sandy
P. Klein's post) contains a surprising photographic blunder; the full
review and photo can be found at:
"I have tried many times to stop
writing about him," Brian Boyd writes near the start of "Stalking
Nabokov," "but ... he keeps on setting me new assignments, making me
offers I cannot refuse."
As the photograph suggests, Brian Boyd's new
assignment will be writing the biography of VN's cousin, the composer
Nicolas Nabokov (1903-78).
