I'm writing a little post about Pnin because for whatever reason, this book has stayed on my mind since I finished it. Really. I think about Professor Pnin a lot -- I imagine him in the book's final scene, I wonder how his health is, and there's this one object of his that I would describe in detail but won't because it's so central to the book. Suffice to say I hope it's still intact and Professor Pnin is still enjoying it. It's a very beautiful thing, the thing in the book, and he deserves to relish that beauty.
