Introduction to VN for early teens (fwd)
From: rfoster <robert.foster@sympatico.ca>

In keeping with your request to participate a bit more, I would like to ask
the group for suggestions on how best to introduce one's children (mine are
13 and 14) to the works of VN. My children are starting to get curious
about who this Nabokov is as I have two bookshelves filled with material by
or about the man. About a month ago, I suggested to my son, who devours
Dragonlance fantasy books, to start with _Speak, Memory_ and perhaps some of
the short stories (from the Viking Portable collection) but he has yet to
get back to me. Can anyone else relate stories about introducing VN's work
to the younger reader??
