Speak, False Memory
Speak, False Memory is the headline in today's NYTBR (p. 12) which is
attached to a review of Israel Rosenfield's _Freud's 'Megalomania'_, a
novel that imagines that a last work by Freud has been recently discovered
in possession of his mistress and their illegitimate daughter. There is no
other mention of VN in the review (and, obviously, the headline was
written by an editor at the NYTBR, not the author of the review, Adam
Phillips) but the combination of VN's altered title and Freud is obviously
a subtle joke by someone who knows well how Nabokov felt about the subject
of Rosenfield's novel.
