About the Author

One of the twentieth century's master prose stylists, Vladimir Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg in 1899. He studied French and Russian literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, then lived in Berlin and Paris, where he launched a brilliant literary career. In 1940 he moved to the United States, and achieved renown as a novelist, poet, critic, and translator. He taught literature at Wellesley, Stanford, Cornell, and Harvard. In 1961 he moved to Montreux, Switzerland, where he died in 1977.

delightful novel, about an absent minded professor in a university almost totally at sea with his own preoccupations and research. he seems to miss the surrounding university at most times but notices the absurdity he is caught up in all too often. that's where the tragic component enters.so well written and touching, a great nabokovian gem.
