The above, as some of you who read the Economist would probably be
aware, was the original title of Vlad Putin's memoirs before it was
changed to "Speak, Memory", for fear that people wouldn't be able to
pronounce the mythical figure's name.

Dear god, I *hope* you meant to write Vladimir Nobokov.  I'd
be appalled to learn that Putin stole Nobokov's title.
