Re: Quine's 1964 satire with Noel Coward and a whiff of Kinbote?]
Hello, Sergei. Thank you for the remarks ("you may notice that Noel Coward collaborated a lot with Peter Ustinov who was Russian, so he could easily learn russian accent. In the Memoirs by Ustinov there were some not very respectful and very imprecise remarks concerning Nabokov (for example, he remarked that the uncle - and not the father - of VN was killed)." So there's a real link bt. Nabokov and Coward after all, even if indirectly, through Ustinov's memoirs (NC and VN also share the same birth-year, 1899). Jansy
