QUERY: Authors of VN vs. Wilson parody in NYTBR of 1972?
Dear List,
Who were "Diron Frieders" and "Mark Hamburg", or the authors of "tasteless
parody" Nabokov vs Wilson from "The New York Times book review" (1972.
January 16, p. 40)?
(See "The New York Times archive:
Nabokov mentioned this "phony names of one or two facetious undergraduates,
judging by the style and piffle" in his letter to John Leonard, editor of
"The New York Times" (reprinted in "Strong Opinions".)

Was it John Leonard, editor of "The New York Times"?!!

Тhanks in advance

Nikolai Mel'nikov
