Re: Google news on Nabokov
When my wife and I visited Dimitri Nabokov in 2001, he kindly agreed to let me have a copy of his father's dream-book for discussion in my Inner Circle Seminars in London on condition that I didn't publish it.
He drew up a legal agreement which we both signed. However, subsequently he denied, or rather, expressed doubt about, having made such an agreement, and never sent the dream-book. I didn't want to prove he was wrong if he no longer wanted to send the book, and didn't press him. We remained friendly. I still have my copy of the agreement signed by him. Anthony Stadlen

> According to Barabtarlo, Nabokov was testing the theories outlined by J.W. Dunne in his An Experiment with Time (Studies in Consciousness) (1927). Barabtalo's TLSpiece also provides some sample dreams which are unavoidable fodder for the kinds of simplistic interpretation Nabokov would have enthusiastically discountenanced. Only a comically deluded character in a Nabokov novel would be grandiose enough to take on the psyche of the master. But here's a go. On November 22, l964 Nabokov dreams he's in a "lecture-hall." His father is speaking...”

> Vladimir Nabokov's novel is a totem in modern literature, an unflinching look at a monster who has been able to hide behind his education and manners. But it's also more than a classic of 20th century literature. Writer and editor Sarah Weinman has published a long, powerful piece of historical reportage about the largely unknown real story that inspired Nabokov's tale.
> 11-year-old Sally Horner entered a Camden, N.J., Woolworth's more than 60 years with the intention of stealing a 5-cent notepad. She was 11 years old and the thievery was her initiation into a girl's club. Instead, it would prove another, far more sinister initiation. "On the afternoon of June 13, 1948, she had no idea a simple act of shoplifting would destroy her life," Weinman writes in Hazlitt, an online magazine owned by Penguin Random House.
> A middle-aged man wearing a suit and a fedora stopped Sally as she left the store. "I am an FBI agent," he told her. "And you are under arrest."
