The New York Times Book ReviewNabokov has found at last a biographer worthy of him.
— Walter Kendrick
The story of Nabokov's life continues with his arrival in the United States in 1940. He found that supporting himself and his family was not easy--until the astonishing success of Lolita catapulted him to world fame and financial security.
"Nabokov has found at last a biographer worthy of him."—Walter Kendrick, The New York Times Book Review
"[Boyd is] an inspired explicator. . . . In Vladimir Nabokov: The American Years [Nabokov's] life and his art intertwine. They work against each other almost as often as they work with each other, and it takes a biographer as skilled as Brian Boyd to keep track of every fascinating twist and turn."—Anne Tyler, The Atlantic
"A munificently detailed biography. . . . [Boyd has] put all readers of Nabokov in his debt."—David Lodge, The Los Angeles Times Book Review
