Nabokovand Frederick Exley's _A Fan's Notes_
Date
Body
The late Fred Exley's _A Fan's Notes: A Fictional Memoir_ (1968) is something of a cult novel. Exley was writing in the 60s when VN was omnipresent. Exley's exuberant, if often uncontrolled, prose style has more than a hint of Nabokov's. The narrator's reading and rereading of LOLITA figures in his "fictional memoir" and Chapter e is entitled Onhava Regained and Lost Again and contains allusiions to Pale Fire.

Interested parties can find extracts of VN-related passages in Exley's book at Junan Martinez' Nabokov web page
