Novelist Vladimir Nabokov sent his wife Vera Nabokov hundreds of love letters throughout their 52-year marriage. 300 of those letters will be published in Letters to Vera next year. UPDATE: Alfred A. Knopf will publish the letters.

A Thaindian News article quoted the couple’s son, Dimitry Nabokov: “I’ve been planning to release these notes for a long time, not only because they are written beautifully and are a pre-eminent epitome of Nabokov’s prose, but also because they allow us to take a closer look at the relationship between two remarkably fine and talented people.”

The RT.com video embedded above provides a glimpse of the letters. Dimitry explained that his mother’s letters will not be included in the book out of respect to her private nature.  (Via Huffington Post)
