In 1940, Vladimir Nabokov fled the Nazis and landed in America, where he would go on to write three novels. The author of "Lolita" fell in love with the United States as he and his family road tripped across the country. In his new book "Nabokov in America," Berkeley author Robert Roper looks at the Russian writer's fascination with the U.S. and its influence on his work.
