Nabokov in Glenn Kenny's Review of The Big Year

...Which is, as one of its characters takes pains to tell another, more ignorant character, quite a bit of a different thing than "bird-watching." (One is reminded of the American editor who thought the last line of Vladimir Nabokov's "Bend Sinister" was "A good night for nothing," rather than the author's extremely correct "A good night for mothing.")
(The rest of the review over is here.)

(Not, incidentally, Mr. Kenny's first or last Nabokov reference. He penned a very Kinbotian preface to Tom Bissell's Speak, Commentary.)
