Vladimir Nabokov on 'Lolita'

The author discusses his 1955 novel on "Close-Up" on CBC.

The Modern Library ranked "Lolita" the fourth most important novel published in English during the 20th century.

Rarified air indeed.

Read it for free, the way we like it.

Yuragi Rocking Chair


I sure would like to try this chair out but that's not likely.

From the website:

The Yuragi Rocking Chair is a modern take on the classic zaisu chair that is found in homes throughout Japan.
Handmade in Okayama, it represents the marriage of time-honored Japanese craftsmanship and Danish design sensibilities.
The Yuragi Rocking Chair features a sturdy frame (in either walnut or oak) that is wrapped with paper cord in the "Danish style" weave that was popularized by many iconic mid-century chair designs.
The paper cording and ergonomic frame provide three-dimensional support for the body, while the single-arm design makes it easy to get in and out of the chair.
Features and Details:
• 26.8"H x 24"W x 29.9"D
• Seat height: 8.66"
About Harumi Fine Craft
Harumi Fine Craft was created in 1999 by craftsperson Harumi Moriya with the goal of embodying the concept of monozukuri — a manufacturing philosophy literally translated as "the process of making or creation which represents the spirit to produce excellent products and the ability to constantly improve a production system and process."
• See how the Yuragi Rocking Chair is made in the Rikumo Journal
• Each Yuragi chair is made to order and may take eight to twelve weeks for delivery. The chair is available in either walnut or oak and can be made with the arm on the left or right. Please email info@rikumo.com for assistance when purchasing.
