This 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.
