Reader recommendation: Véra

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I just finished reading Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) by Stacy Schiff.  The mysterious marriage of Véra and her famous husband, the author of "Lolita," was intriguing, but I read it because of their teamwork in translating Pushkin's "Eugene Onegin." So many Russian authors to read and so little time!
