Re: For New York area Nabophiles (fwd)
EDITOR's NOTE. Two of the most interesting books on Nabokov to appear in
1999 were Kurt Johnson's and Steve Coates' book on VN's achievements as a
lepidopterist cum S. American adventure story and Sara Funke's (of Glenn
Horowitz Booksellers) beautifully illustrated _Vera's Butterflies_ with,
inter alia, Nabokov hand-drawn dedication butterflies to his wife. I envy
those of you in the New York area the chance to hear these people.
