VLADIMIR NABOKOV

nabokov

Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) was at the Grand in June 1965. He was an important figure of the world literature thanks to the success of Lolita, published in 1955 by the Olympia Press in Paris. Many journalists interviewed him in the garden of the hotel and found a quiet old man, tall, stribg, dressed like a colonial English man much more than a Russian-American. He was confident in front of the camera, next to his wife. They asked the reason for the holiday on the lake "On these hills there are rare butterflies" he said. "Perhaps in the United States lolitas were called "butterflies"? Someone cracked a smile. Nabokov was also an entomologist (and what fame!), as well as a literary critic and a so different writer from the one who wrote his most famous novel.
