Books on Vladimir Nabokov

After a pretty compelling reading of Pnin (1957), I hit the streets and tried to gather some information about the author. Nabokov writes passionately about classics such as Anna Karenina in Pnin. But on the other side when it comes to literary scholars in the novel he often takes a sardonic tone. Let’s see what other scholars wrote about him. The titles evoke appraisal but I’m also looking for critical remarks about the politics of his writing. I’ll take a note for the initial books I encountered on web here.
