In Memoriam: Deborah Anne Martinsen (1954-2021)
The Nabokov community mourns the loss of Deborah Anne Martinsen, distinguished Dostoevsky and Nabokov scholar. Dr. Martinsen's essay "Lolita as Petersburg Text" (Nabokov Studies 13 [2014/2015]) won, in 2017, The Donald Barton Johnson Prize for the best essay published in Nabokov Studies. Dr. Martinsen was 67 years old and battled pancreatic cancer. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her loved ones, Randall Butler, her husband, and Rory Butler, their son.
