Dear Julian,

Thanks for noticing my forthcoming book! It grew out of an MLA presentation I made in 2009 in Philadelphia, where I first met several of the Nabokovians on this list. NABOKV-L has been an indispensable part of my research, and so many members have been incredibly generous with their time and feedback. (I have also been touched by the generosity of other VN scholars around the world.)

I was going to wait until there was something more concrete to point to, as the book is still being edited. But when it arrives, I hope that list members will find the new material engaging.

Best wishes,
