And the day arrives

Selected Poems, by Vladimir Nabokov.
"This title will be auto-delivered to your Kindle on May 29, 2012."

No more scrounging around in old city libraries for scraps of verses in out-of-print editions and furtively taking snaps on the phone for posterity. No more zealous inquiries in second-hand stores on travels in foreign lands, run by old men with hopeful eyes that turn wistful at the mention of the name.

The poet who emigrated to prose, is coming home.
