I still need to read The Pale Fire and Pnin someday. But that clip was rather stereotypical in feel and it doesn’t jibe with those wonderful lecture notes that I’ve read at the beginning of some of the Dickens novels that Bantam released years ago.
I know, I know…no Proust either. Seems there are certain “blind spots” that always surprise people when I tell them I’ve yet to read those authors/books. As much as I like his work now, I didn’t read Graham Greene until last year. But I’ll get around to reading Pale Fire and Pnin before the summer, if at all possible.
