Vladimir Nabokov was born in a noble family in Saint Petersburg on April 22 1899. His father was one of the leaders of the the Kadet political party, and after the revolution of 1917 the family had to flee Russia. Starting 1919, Nabokov lived in Cambridge and Berlin. When the fascists seized power in Germany, he moved to Paris and then to the USA. In 1960, he moved again, this time to Switzerland. Though the author left his motherland in his youth, his work was strongly affected by his memories of Russia. Nabokov wrote in two languages — Russian and English. The writer was aknowledged world-wide for such masterpieces as 'The Defence' (1930), 'Lolita' (1955)  considered to be his most famous novel, and his finest work in English.
