Vladimir Nabokov's grave can be found in the village of Clarens (near Montreux), canton de Vaud, Switzerland.

Vladimir Nabokov, 1899-1977, was a novelist who, among other masterpieces, wrote :
1928 : King, Queen, Knave
1934 : Despair
1955 : Lolita
1962 : Pale Fire
1969 : Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle

As I like to say (and I'm not the only one) it's not Nabokov who did not get the Nobel prize in literature but the Nobel jurors who did not get Nabokov !
