    DescriptionThis is a new scholarly almanac devoted to the art of Vladimir Nabokov. Himself an ardent goalkeeper, the author of "Lolita" viewed soccer as more than a game: 'I was less the keeper of a soccer goal than the keeper of a secret' ("Speak, Memory"). The inaugural collection features contributions from two dozen leading Nabokov scholars worldwide, including academic articles (Neil Cornwell, Gerard de Vries, Samuel Schuman, and others); roundtable discussions (Brian Boyd, Jeff Edmunds, Priscilla Meyer, David Rampton, Leona Toker); interviews (Dmitri Nabokov, Alvin Toffler); archival materials; the Kyoto Nabokov conference report; and, book reviews (Pekka Tammi, Zoran Kuzmanovich, Galya Diment). "The Nabokov Almanac", edited by Yuri Leving, is affiliated with the "Nabokov Online Journal", published since 2007.

    Review quote
    The book that emerges is one of those gifts whose first impact produces in the recipient s mind a colored image, a blazoned blur, reflecting with such emblematic force the sweet nature of the contributors. -- T.W. Thomas, Professor of Anthropology, Waindell College
