I am also comfortable with calling Nabokov an American, especially for Lolita. In no small part because may appetite has been whetted for reading and discussing Lolita here by some means.

My concern is where it might lead once the criteria is made squishy. Is Out of Africa by a author from North & Central Europe or by an author from Sub-Saharan Africa? Is Kim by an author from Ireland & The U.K. or South Asia? Then my main concern with getting squishy is opening the scope of what are, at least culturally and from a point of view, American, Canadian, and United Kingdom authors, to the entire world. Really the opposite of any contention over Nabokov.

So I've voted so as to cover all the bases for what I would like to see next. Ideally Lolita, and if not . . .
