Letters to the Editor


To the Editors,

In your April/May number of 1999 I was glad to see the note by John Varoli about the celebration of Vladimir Nabokov’s 100th birthday at 47 Bolshaia Morskaia in St Petersburg.  Mr. Varoli mentions that this is now “the world’s only Nabokov museum,” since the family summer residence at Rozhdestveno burned down in 1995.

In July 1999, with the Rozhdestveno Museum’s director Aleksandr Semochkin, I saw the work being done to restore the Rozhdestveno mansion, which already had its roof on and once again gazes down on the Luga highway.
