Dear Brian, 

I very much look forward to seeing the documentary. I just came across Girodias and the Lolita connection in the latest TLS. Seems he made a fortune off Lolita and sank the proceeds into a restaurant which went bust. I'm sure Nabokov would have approved.

Dear NabLers all:

Here's a documentary by Christopher Sykes, The Making of "Lolita":
My Most Difficult Book, BBC, 1989, with Martin Amis, BB, A.S.
Byatt, Maurice Girodias, Dmitri and Véra Nabokov and Edmund White.
The room I'm being interviewed in is the "archive room," at the
end of the corridor on the sixth floor of the Cygne wing of the
Montreux Palace Hotel, a former laundry room which I turned into
the archive room in 1979 and which stayed in that form until 1990,
when Véra had to move out for renovations. Enjoy!
