Vladimir Nabokov Quote Made on Typewriter by FlightOfFancyPrints

На английском Набоков писал гораздо изящнее. Розыск, розыск: Долорес Гейз, Шатенка, губ алая метка. Возраст – пять тысяч триста дней. Не работает – или "старлетка". Где ты витаешь, Долорес Гейз? Неужели и след простынет? (И млею я весь, и мрею я здесь, Из клетки скворцу пути нет).

It’s tempting to find, in the author’s detailed drawings, a figure for Nabokov himself—the shape-shifting artist who travelled from Old World to New.
