Browning's door
Gene Barabtarlo, the annotations editor of THE NABOKOVIAN, tells
me that the journal wishes to publish the information contained in the
NABOKV-L thread on Browning's door in the Wellesley library (referred to
in VN's whimsical Chronology to his book NIKOLAI GOGOL). I do not know
just what form this will take, but in any case permissions are now being
sought from the participants. Since the original messages have only the
senders' E-mail addresses, please send your permission (or denial) along
with your full name and mailing address to Professor Gene Barabtarlo at
Thank you for your cooperation.
