Re: An interesting interview of Nabokov in French
While writing my new book ("Nabokov, ou la tentation française"; it hopefully
will come out this year) in which I study Nabokov's brand of French, his many
stays in France, the circumstances in which "Lolita" was published and censored
in France, Nabokov's strong opinions about French authors from Ronsard to Robbe-
Grillet, and the reception of his works in France, I came across a very
interesting interview he gave to "L'Express" in 1959 which I would like to
share, in my translation, with the Nabokovians.
