Nabokov and Germany - On a book entitled "Vladimir Nabokovs Eigenwelt"

Submitted by andriej_kotin on Wed, 05/18/2022 - 12:15

Dear All,

 

my book about Nabokov and Germany - "Vladimir Nabokovs Eigenwelt. Deutsche Bezugspunkte einer russischen Künstlerexistenz" - was published on 16.05.2022 by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht. 

https://www.vandenhoeck-ruprecht-verlage.com/detail/index/sArticle/57629

I hope, it will find interest among Nabokov admirers who speak/read (in) German.

 

Kind regards,

Andrey Kotin

A new instalment of the Ada annotations, 2.7, including a fart joke you may have missed, is now available on the website here. That makes 50 chapters—oof! And simultaneously, 2.5 now becomes available on AdaOnline, a long and dense chapter with many illustrations.

 

Thanks once again to Steve Blackwell and Diana Makhaldiani for meticulous corrections and astute suggestions.
