Reading Nabokov is to experience the master. Do not allow yourself to be put off by the subject matter, perhaps because you consider it distasteful. To do so is to fall at the first hurdle.
The end is close. I will probably watch both versions of the film again after finishing the book this week. And then what to read next? I don’t know. Something old rather than something new, methinks. I like writing that has stood the test of time. For a reason.
PS I created the montage/mashup using images from this wonderful collection on Flickr. The person has amassed some amazing retro/vintage/grungy backgrounds which are perfect for the kind of mashups I like creating.
