Re: Vladimir Nabokov: Lolita
Yeah, that's what you get when you outsource editorial duties to Nova Zembla, or was it Padukgrad? No, wait it was edited at Estoty, Demonia, I remember now.
Anyway, it's sad that leaving out the foreword from the book will lead to this little fact not being included in the novel: "Mrs. Richard F. Schiller died in childbed giving birth to a stillborn girl, on Christmas Day 1952, in Gray Star a settlement in the remotest northwest".
Well, who cares about a minor character of the book, or at least for most of the book?

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations, such is a pleasure beyond compare.
