Dmitri forwarded your charming "birthday present" and I enjoyed it very much. Particularly lovely was the memory of Vera Nabokov, whom I knew through DN, and also adored.@

What a wonderful birthday! / Shoko Miura


This was a wonderful idea, and I salute you for making it possible. I also want to thank all who gave his/her gift of love on VN's birthday so generously. They were moving gifts to those who were waiting to read them, like me. I also enjoyed reading this guestbook, especially Dmitri's warm words.

Dear Akiko,

Many thanks for the tribute; thanks as well for all the contributors. DN's contribution is a real gem! One would like to see that one added to Sarah Funke's book.

Hi! Thank you for your great show for VN's birthday. I enjoyed reading the presenter's messages.
I have been teriibly busy and awfully exhausted.
There are many things to do this week...Maybe 2003 must be one of the hardest years in my life. Check your mailbox! You will find a personal, secret message from me! See you!

Congratulations on your opening new HP! / Nobuaki Kakinuma

Dear Akiko-sensei

Today for the first time I browsed your HP despite an invitation you once have made (long ago?). My impression is that there are so many people enchanted by Nabokovfs specific literary microcosms all over the world. When I researched into Nabokovfs literature at the graduate school in Japan, only a few people (majoring in Russian Literature) were interested in Nabokov. At that time it seemed to me that studying Nabokov is equal to learning some esoteric knowledge.
Browsing your site, I hit upon the idea that itfs very nice to issue printed versions of your Web site in English and Russian (which include serious papers). The Nabokov Society in Japan in which you are involved incorporates researchers of English-American and Russian literatures, so that it would be very probable to accomplish this plan, if you or your associates can get a bountiful handout from scientific organizations. But that is just my impromptu.
Itfs very happy to share my inclination toward Nabokovfs literature with Nabokov-philes all over the world.
