Query: "real life"
From: naiman@socrates.berkeley.edu

In Strong Opinions "Nabokov says "I tend more and more to regard the
objective existence of all events as a form of impure imagination -- hence
my inverted commas around 'reality.'" I seem to recall him saying the
same thing somewhere about the phrase "real life." Does anyone know where
that point is made?
