Publication day for The Secret History

What were you planning to do today? Well, today is publication day for The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov!

I hope you’ll plow through any pesky snowfall that happened to arrive overnight and go to your local bookstore to buy it, or check it out of your library, or borrow it from a friend. If you find yourself entirely snowed in, you can order it online. Mostly, I hope you’ll read it.

People who send me pictures of themselves fully clothed and holding a copy of the book in the next two weeks will be entered in a drawing to win a very Nabokovian prize.

Happy reading!
