Abstract

Review of Stacy Schiff, Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov). Criticizes Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) for skimping on Véra Nabokov before and especially after VN, for the author's not knowing Russian and elementary facts such as which languages her subject mastered, and for reporting nth-hand gossip as if it had evidentiary value.
