[.] In 1969, the BBC's James Mossman conducted an extensive interview with
Vladimir Nabokov, which was first published in a magazine called The
Listener, and later in a book entitled Strong Opinions. Some of Mossman's
questions were serious: "You've said that you've explored time's prison and
have found no way out. Are you still exploring.? Some were lighter: "Why do
you live in hotels?" And still other questions fell somewhere in between,
like: "If you ruled any modern industrial state absolutely, what would you
abolish?" It turns out that loud noises, muzak, bidets, and insecticides
made the great novelist and lepidopterist's list.[.]
