Letters from Nabokov

In the June 13 New Yorker they have an article with some of the letters of Vladimir Nabokov, they are wonderful, a new book with previously unpublished letters is due to be published, translated by Olga Veronina and Brian Boyd with Dmitri Nabokov, look out for it!

On the next page there is an intriguing article by Salvatore Scibona about a college - St John's in Santa Fe, New Mexico where they read Aristotle and Copernicus, instead of textbooks, it sounds incredible and I wonder if he is being ironic.
