    schema:reviewBody ""Simon Karlinsky has substantially expanded and revised the first edition of Vladimir Nabokov and Edmund Wilson's correspondence to include fifty-nine letters discovered subsequent to the book's original publication in 1979. Since then five volumes of Edmund Wilson's diaries have been published, as well as a volume of Nabokov's correspondence with other people and Brian Boyd's definitive two-volume biography of Nabokov. The additional letters and a considerable body of new annotations clarify the correspondence, tracing in greater detail the two decades of close friendship between the writers. This expanded edition also reveals their growing animosity, perceptible in repeated disagreements on such subjects as Russian history and revolution and the value of certain authors. The decades of friendship and mutual appreciation came to a dramatic end in 1965, with Wilson's vehement attack in print on Nabokov's annotated edition of Pushkin's novel Eugene Onegin. These letters outline the mutual affection and closeness of the two writers, but also reveal the slow crescendo of mutual resentment, mistrust and rejection."--Jacket." ;
