In Chapter 9 of 'King, Queen, Valet'
Erica tells to Kurt Dreyer that she is now the mistress of and older
and very 'chic' man. This man is married with the daughter of a general
and she has TBC. She lives abroad . The man left now for Davos to be
for a month with his wife. (my translation from the Dutch translation ).

I can read this only as a reference to Thomas Mann and 'Der Zauberberg'.
Can someone tell me if this reference was already present in the
original version of the book in 1928.
Was Nabokov criticizing Thomas Mann also at other occasions at these times ?
