St. Petersburg Nabokov Museum: Sebastian Knight's Birthday
The Nabokov Museum had a public celebration of Sebastian Knight's birthday
last month. In addition to a program of poetic improvisations and
parodies, a charming little booklet was premiered: ZHIZN' I TVORCHESTVO
SEBASTIANA NAITA (Life & works of SK). The handsome booklet is mostly the
work of the Museum's founder Vadim Stark who in the spirit of Nabokovian
mystification authors various parts of the whole under anagrammatic
pseudonyms. Inter alia, the bilingual work includes a useful chronology of
the novel as well as parallel English and Russian excerpts.
