A correction to the below. My close friend Oleg Dark isn't an
emigre critic but Moscow's "man of letters". He wrote the Commentary to
the five volumes of the Nabokov "Ogonyok" edition.

Sergei Il'in is undoubtedly right, although Gurbolikova does list
Oleg Dark as an emigre critic of the thirties along with Adamovich.
