Re: Fitzgerald and Connelly (fwd)
From: Maurice Couturier <couturie@taloa.unice.fr>

Considering the return of the Fitzgerald topic on the forum, colleagues
may be interested to know that a big Fitzgerald conference is being held
in Nice at the moment with, as far as I have been able to judge, no
reference whatsoever to Nabokov.

I have recently read a very exciting thriller, Michael Connelly's Angel
Flight published last year in which Humbert Humbert and Charlotte appear
as web sites; the novel deals among other things with the subject of a
father abusing and eventually killing his own daughter. In reference to
Humbert Humbert, one of the characters says: "It's the name of a
character from literature or what some people consider literature...
Lolita, by Nabokov". p. 184.
