    I'm in a cell, too. Not waiting for my beheading, however. Well at least I don't think so. Somewhere in Latin America.

    Nice to see Nabokov is still popular around here. :)

    Maybe it is. If so, I had a sex change and maybe turned gay (there's 2 characters in my cell). :whistling:

    Haven't yet read Speak, Memory; it's on the never-ending TBR list.

    You're right - it could do with some editing but it is a fascinating read. I read Q&A by Vikas Swarup a few weeks ago so wanted to read something else about Bombay.
