"When I first met her, she was dating another guy. He didn’t like me talking to her, so he waited for me outside of class one day and beat me up. But I didn’t give up on her. I started biking and swimming and learning to box. I got skinnier than you are. Then the next time I saw him, he came over to me and said: ‘You want another round?’ And I said: ‘This will be the last round!’ Then I knocked him out in two punches."

Over the course of a half-century, Vladimir Nabokov wrote hundreds of letters to his wife Vera, which are being published in book form this week for the first time. Among other things, they reveal the absurd pet names he invented for his (such as Goosykins and Monkeykins) and display Nabokov musing over whether or not to borrow a friend’s castle for the summer. Also worth reading: our own Garth Risk Hallberg on Nabokov’s Ada, or Ardor.
