Vladimir Nabokov, geb. 1899 in St. Petersburg, entstammte einer großbürgerlichen russischen Familie, die nach der Oktoberrevolution von 1917 emigrierte. Nabokov selbst ging zunächst nach England, wo er am Trinity College in Cambridge französische und russische Literatur studierte. 1938 verließ Nabokov Deutschland und ging mit seiner Frau und seinem Sohn nach Paris, bevor er 1940 nach Amerika übersiedelte. Wegen seiner Kenntnisse als er erhielt er 1942 einen Forschungsauftrag der Harvard Universität.
Upon opening Vladimir Nabokov's King, Queen, Knave (translated from the Russian by Dmitri Nabokov in collaboration with the author), I was immediately struck by the degree to which certain passages reminded me of Proust.

Vladimir Nabokov (1899 to 1977) is a Russian born writer who went to Cambridge, then lived in western Europe, the US, and finally retired in Switzerland. Most know him for his 1955 creation of Lolita, which he wrote and re-wrote for over twenty years before the final product. It was based on a real life French story, but set in America. He has 20 novels, and I have read about half.
