Humanities Institute

Claremont-based novelists David Treuer (Prudence) and Jonathan Lethem (Dissident Gardens) consider the different ways Vladimir Nabokov’s elusive self is simultaneously disclosed and shrouded from view in his treatment of his most arrogant protagonist, and his most retiring. In the process, Treuer and Lethem will disclose (and perhaps shroud) the tricky presence of their own “selves” in the narrational space of their respective fictions.
