Read in January, 2004

When you get to read a memoir of a writer you admire, it's like sharing an intimacy. Nabakov remains elusive to me because of his crazy brilliance, but in Speak, Memory, he shares his childhood and loves, chasing butterflies and associating color to the alphabet, loves he carried on into adulthood. A wonderful, non-linear narrative, of course; structured like the spiral snatchings of memory.
