Nabokov List:


I have been rereading Richard Ohmann’s  “The Shaping of a Canon: U.S. Fiction 1960-1975” (I can supply the full bibliographic reference if anyone wants), where he discusses the marketing factors that create best-sellers.  He “exclude[s] novelists of foreign origin (Asimov, Kosinski, Nabokov),” but he doesn’t say why.
