Say "nuh-BOE-kof" | Vladimir Nabokov, 1958

Novelist Vladimir Nabokov looking out of car window. He likes to work in the car, writing on index cards. Nabokov never learned how to drive, his wife Vera acted as his chauffeur.
Lolita is famous, not I. I am an obscure, doubly obscure, novelist with an unpronounceable name.
-Vladimir Nabokov,
Paris Review, Oct. 1967
