If Vladimir Nabokov's fiction merits any criticism, it is for its iciness. The master himself declared in a 1977 BBC interview, "My characters cringe as I come near them with my whip. I have seen a whole avenue of imagined trees losing their leaves at the threat of my passage. Nabokov's correspondence, however, reveals a far warmer individual, though one ever-ready with a verbal shiv.

Nice supplement to his fiction if you want to learn more about the man behind his layered writing this is an easy place to start. He comes across warmer in his letters than his work- just to name one difference you'll see if you read his correspondence.

But you cannot blame the editors of this book.

Nabokov is only the magician in his art.

In his letters one only finds some pearl
hidden beneath tons and tons of anodine
letters.

I have never read Lolita, and I don't know if I will. But I can certainly see now that it was written by a great writer who cared about his work and his family. Who would expect a book of "selected letters" to be a page-turner? But it is. Nabokov's example of hard work, uncompromising attention to detail (what other kind is there? I'm sure he would ask), respect for knowledge, humility when ignorant, and warmth towards family and friends is a pleasure to read. Also an education, whether it be about scientific naming of butterflies, or about the wide variety of Nabokov's writings -- whoever thinks Lolita is not for them can choose from other stories, poetry, or a literal prose translation of Eugene Onegin.

P.s. Letters collected, arranged, and translated as necessary by his loving and loved son. How nice, then, that I rediscovered this book on my shelf, marked with a birthday present note from my father, waiting for when I had the time to read it. Thanks, Dad!
