Really, Vladimir Vladimirovich Would Have Loved It

My company ain't perfect, but Penguin sure has had a Nabokovian year of flukes.

This week their UK company shipped a printing of LOLITA without the John Ray (fictional) forward.

And of course a few months ago their Australian division had to pulp 7000 copies of a pasta cookbook that called for "freshly ground black people" to be added to a recipe instead of "freshly ground black pepper."

Anyway, that's all I'm saying. Pnin rules.
