Re: Dmitri Nabokov Sues an American Publisher (fwd)
From: George Shimanovich <>

I don't see how the forum dedicated to Nabokov can serve as a clipboard
for insinuations (under pretext like "modern literary process") toward
the only surviving member of VN's immediate family who happened to be
(surprise!) a honest person.

Unless the forum's purpose gradually deteriorates to expressing the
personal grudges all of us should quickly realize that we are quite
temporary on these pages while the art and the name that we serve are for
generations to come.
