Orhan Pamuk says about VN in this audio interview from November 18, 2015,
in NYC:

"Nabokov had learned [English]... in his childhood..."

"... to treat a lower class character... I argue that novels... the best
novels are written by aristocrats... Nabokov probably wrote best novels

I transcribed the audio possibly with some errors.
