The current Phi Beta Kappa publication "The Key
(Sept 2009) has a book review by Rick Eden of a
volume by Adam Thirlwell entitled THE DELIGHTED STATES. Its theme is style
(broadly speaking) and translation. Included is an appendix containing the
original French version of VN's memoir about his French governess and
a translation by Thirlwell.
